Kol Isha (A Woman's Voice):

What Women’s Songs Tell Us About the Jewish World

Global Culture & History

From forest to factory floor, from the cradle to the chuppah (wedding canopy), from kitchen to kibbutz, in the synagogue and at the shore of the sea - women’s experience fills the map of Jewish song across five centuries. We will learn songs about and by women in Ashkenaz, Sefarad, pre-state Palestine and Israel, in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino and in some singable English translations, and discuss their historical contexts.
