R'fuah Sh'leimah: Songs and Words of Jewish Healing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Music is elemental to human nature. We naturally sing a lullaby, chant a children's rhyme, or whistle while we work. Perhaps music's power derives from its rhythmic essence, for we are rhythmic creatures in our breathing and our heart pulsing. Hence the power of music to restore our natural rhythms, the steady beat of life re-regularized despite the pain. Hence too, ritual; for music is ritualized sound, and even when there is no cure, healing can come from ritual. This is a presentation of healing music through voice and piano. May it find a place where illness threatens and music heals.
