Can a Jewish American and Palestinian Muslim Find a Common Bond Through Music?
Join celebrated Jewish American songwriter/producer Michael Hunter Ochs and noted Palestinian songwriter/commentator Alaa Alshaham for an evening of song and conversation. You will be inspired as these two improbable friends lead us in worship, and retrace their steps through the security checkpoints between Israel and the West Bank, across the Middle East – eventually finding themselves performing together at the United Nations.
Hear the story, listen to the songs...and feel the hope.
Friday, December 4 at 7:30pm*
*Congregants are invited to meet with Alaa and Michaelduring this evening's oneg for a smaller group dialogue.
“Through wise words and incredible music they show us the very path ahead that seems to elude politicians and diplomats these days. They deserve a wide, global audience.” -Dr. Henrik Syse, Senior Research Fellow at Peace Research Institute Oslo, Member of the Norwegian Nobel Committee"They sang what Martin Luther King preached: respect and understanding between people of different races, ethnicities and religions. Ochs and Alshaham chant in a way that proves the power of prayer regardless of the language in which it is sung. Dr. King would have approved.” -Rabbi Rob Nosanchuk and Rabbi Josh Caruso, Fairmont Temple after the MLK Interfaith Residency (Cleveland, Ohio)“It is truly an amazing display of courage and talent for Alaa and Michael to take on the world with all its challenges, and perform with such grace -sharing a much needed personal message of hope. Their music brought our community together.” -Daoud Abudiab, Our Muslim Neighbors, President"...grace-filled human beings who bring alive the pursuit of harmony and journey toward peace in this hurting and vulnerable world...in the midst of our struggle for racial harmony and justice, and they filled our hearts and souls with the spirit of Shalom, Salaam and Peace.” -The Very Rev. Tracey Lind Dean, Trinity Cathedral (Cleveland, Ohio)“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead
