What Makes Jewish Music “Jewish?”

Before I get into this post, there are two points of business:   First, I’m happy to announce that Rochel, who commented “My least favorite room is the kitchen. However, I do enjoy the workout that cleaning it entails!” is the winner of the “Let My RV Go” novel giveaway.  Yay!  I’ve emailed you to… Continue reading What Makes Jewish Music “Jewish?”

The Power of Music: an Experiment in Film

Everyone pretty much agrees that music can be extremely potent.  I’ve been moved to tears on multiple occasions (and not even because of hormones, haha).  People have playlists for working out, playlists for yoga, playlists for a bad mood, a good mood, cleaning, and anything else you could probably think of.  Music can move us.… Continue reading The Power of Music: an Experiment in Film

Does your Daddy know you’re here?

Here’s a musical memory from nearly a decade ago (oh wow).  Enjoy!  Immediately after I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Music Performance, I found myself in a musically shiftless situation.  I no longer had the benefit of ensembles to play with, and I also didn’t have the advantage of knowing people in town to jam… Continue reading Does your Daddy know you’re here?

Review and Giveaway of Chanale’s newest CD

I love Chanale Fellig’s  music. When I heard that she had released another CD, I wanted to get it.  And then I dawdled, and things came up, and we moved, and, well, I didn’t buy it until a week and a half ago.  And what a shame that I waited!  It’s a fantastic album.  I… Continue reading Review and Giveaway of Chanale’s newest CD

Day To Disconnect Review

Last Sunday, Tzom Gedalia (October 2nd), I participated in the Day To Disconnect, a movement to encourage people to put down their tech and connect with people the old-fashioned way, face-to-face. I decided to share my experience with a vlog!  The sound quality is not as great as I would like; apologies for that.  I’d… Continue reading Day To Disconnect Review
