On Saturday, February 28 at 7:30 PM the Havurah welcomes Gabriel Meyer Halevy in Many Continents – One Planet!, a concert spiced with stories celebrating the human spirit. Halevy, peacemaker, musician, vocalist and storyteller will share original and folk songs based on his own nomadic experiences as a cultural and interfaith bridge builder for peace.
Gabriel Meyer Halevy, born in Cordoba, Argentina, son of Rabbi Marshall Meyer who saved the lives of thousands of Jews when that country was under military rule in the 1970’s, now carries on that work in Israel. He is co-founder of the Sulha Peace Project that is based in Jerusalem. They do exceptional work bringing Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Druze communities together for study, music, and mutual support. Mr. Halevy travels the globe performing his music and facilitating interfaith and multicultural gatherings. The Human Project is Gabriel’s first solo CD.
Rabbi David Zaslow of Ashland’s Havurah Synagogue says, “Gabriel is a modern day troubadour. His music touches the heart, and his storytelling touches the soul. For anyone who cares about interfaith reconciliation, this is a concert not to be missed.” The concert is free and open to all. Donations to support Halevy will be gratefully accepted. The Havurah is located at 185 N. Mountain Ave. in Ashland. Call 541-488-7716 for more info or visit www.havurahshirhadash.org. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
