Finding Comfort in Music

Music from Israel
As we have done every day for the past few weeks, we wish all of our community good health and peace as we endure this unique time that we all hope will end swiftly and with the least suffering possible. As we have stated in our past messages, please contact the shul if you need anything – we are here to help. And, please attend our online programming to feel our community connection. 
Today, we are highlighting a topic that is sure to be uplifting – music! Most Americans think of “Jewish” or “Israeli” music as liturgical, BUT it is far from that. Music from Israel is folk and rock and blues and country and even rap. For your listening pleasure, here is a list of some of the greatest contemporary albums from Israel from the past 20 years, or so. Please send us your favorites.
(p.s. the links should open in Apple Music in case you want to stream the songs).
