At 8 PM on Saturday, November 8th at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, MA, Rimon: Resource Center for Jewish Spirituality presents a concert by the international Jewish music star, Neshama Carlebach with special guests, Rev. Milton Vann and members of the Glory to God Singers.
Neshama Carlebach has seven albums to her credit, including the 2011 Higher and Higher which was nominated for a Grammy. Daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, whose spiritually resonant melodies are beloved throughout the Jewish world, Neshama has dedicated herself to preserving her father’s legacy, bringing people together and healing suffering in the world through music. The concert will honor Reb Shlomo on this 20th anniversary of his passing.
Neshama’s collaboration with Rev. Milton Vann and the Glory to God Singers expresses true harmony and peace among the world’s cultural and religious traditions. Such collaboration is inspiring and so very needed in these troubled times and will provide an opportunity to deepen interfaith connections within our community.
