Wherever we find Jewish people in the world we find the songs of Hanukkah, the 8-day Festival of Lights that celebrates the successful Jewish revolt against the Seleucid Empire during the 2nd Century B.C.E. Come and hear Mark Levy present, perform, and discuss a selection of these songs in languages that include Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian, English, and possibly others.
For more than 40 years, Mark Levy has performed for temples, synagogues, Jewish Community Centers, Jewish fraternal organizations, labor unions, schools, colleges and universities, festivals, and folk music clubs throughout North America and abroad. His specialty is Jewish music in all its forms, sacred and secular, from medieval to modern. The Folk Music Society of New York is proud to present Mark Levy in what will be his fourth performance for us, and his first since 2014.
Mark’s performance-talk will be followed by Q&A, and then by a facilitated Hanukkah sing-along and jam.
