This year, I’ll be playing with the Noah Aronson Band at Mayyim Hayyim’s Milestones — Step by Step Spring Benefit. I’m thrilled to be able to share in the celebration of this incredible organization. I have had the opportunity twice in my life to immerse in a mikveh. Once on the side of a mountain in the mystical city of Sefat, in Israel, and the other time was here at Mayyim Hayyim. While both experiences were markedly different, each left a lasting imprint on my soul.
I try to write music from a place that touches my spirit in the hopes that it resonates with others’ as well. Mayim Hayyim, with its uniquely open and inclusive framework, has touched so many people and gives us a safe place to reconnect with our neshama, our Jewish soul, deepening our connections to our tradition, heritage and community.
I can’t imagine the beautiful sound we will make together on June 9th with an audience of people who’ve shared in this profound, heart-opening experience.
Here’s a sneak peak of what attendees have in store…
Join us on June 9th, when we’ll honor Terry Rosenberg and Lauren Neill, and present the Nachshon Award to Dr. Paula Brody and Merrill Hassenfeld.
