“Wherever you go, there’s always someone Jewish!” These words are very true and HaNefesh is excited to explore countries around the world where Jews have lived and contributed to many communities.
Throughout the year we will “travel” to various communities learning from highly qualified tour guides and educators. Then, we will pair our “trips” with a local event, exploring foods and culture of our destinations.

Judith Cohen is a Canadian ethnomusicologist and singer known for her work in Sephardic music, and related traditions. Village songs of Spain and Portugal, narrative ballads and stories in English and pan-European traditions, Balkan singing, songs of French Canada, Yiddish – and music of Medieval Europe are among her performance and workshop repertoires. Besides, she has spent many years of fieldwork and research on music in the lives of Portuguese Crypto-Jews, who maintained their identity throughout the centuries of the Inquisition.
