SOUL TO SOUL
Monday, January 15 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day) at 2 PM
at Museum of Jewish Heritage
Enjoy this concert exploring the experiences of two minority peoples and their paths to America’s promise of freedom—overcoming segregation, prejudice, and economic hardship. This event features stirring songs in Yiddish and in English, culminating in a high-energy collection of enthralling music from the Civil Rights era: featuring Lisa Fishman (The Golden Bride), Cantor Magda Fishman (Temple Beth El of Stamford, Connecticut), Elmore James (Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast) and Tony Perry (Five Guys Named Moe). Conceived with musical direction by NYTF Artistic Director, Zalmen Mlotek.
“An explosion of talent!”

Soul to Soul has become a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day tradition in New York. It has been received with standing ovations nationally and internationally in Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, Miami, Chattanooga, Toronto, Winnipeg and Bucharest and will be seen on Sunday, January 14th in Baltimore.
“A dynamic concert that draws cultural parallels during the civil rights era.”
Let your voice be heard in a post-show discussion with the artists and creators about the historic partnership between the African-American and Jewish communities in the civil rights movement and the critical need for vigilance in our times.
“A musical powerhouse”
