Participants' comments:

"Another terrific, interactive program providing a different lens onto Israeli society."
Jay S., Montclair,NJ

"I thought this presentation was absolutely amazing. I love Israeli music, and it was so great to be able to see the English translations, and the real meanings behind the songs. I also learned a lot more about Israeli history."
Benji B., Montclair,NJ

"It was an enjoyable way to learn about the history of modern Israel. Any time you use multi-sensory approaches to learning you have a greater chance of success. In addition, the musical choices were poignant."
Harriet P. S., Chappaqua,NY

"I have very little knowledge of the history of Israel. I found the music helped to bring life to the subject, and a depth of insight that would otherwise not have been there."
Participant, Pleasantville,NY

"A provocative look at Israel's history through music. Made me think and Jeremy's questions encouraged great group participation."
