Adult Education: The Jewish Soul and the Christian Composer – Class 3 of 3 – JOIN US!

June 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Did you know that non-Jewish composers have portrayed Jewish culture over the century? One might expect non-Jews to avoid Jewish themes in their music or to portray Jews with antipathy. Non-Jewish composers have often been very surprising in their use of Jewish culture and religious motifs in their music.  We will explore the composer of the Messiah who was the most prolific in setting stories from the Tanach. The Kol Nidre theme was turned into a cello sonata by a German Protestant. The Kaddish was set, in Hebrew, by a French Catholic…and much more.  All classes are held from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. Taught by Jonathan Degann.

Course fees with advance RSVP – Temple Members $18; Guests $36. To register or for information, contact Debbie at 818.348.0670 or dshayer@koltikvah.org
