Naomi Shemer: Beyond “Jerusalem of Gold”, taught by Cantor David Lipp

One session only! Monday, April 1 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST on Zoom

Israeli music owes a lot to the artist Naomi Shemer. In many ways, Shemer helped define the tone and trajectory of Israeli popular music. For example, the genre Shirei Eretz Yisrael (Songs of the Land of Israel) would be far poorer without this sui generis singer/song-writer. In this moving follow up to Cantor David Lipp’s hit course “Israeli Pop Jamz”, we get an overview of her lasting influence and legacy on the corpus of Israeli artistic expression. Join us for a rockin’ good class!
