Chava is one of the leading lights in North American Jewish Music, known for her beautiful, soulful voice and haunting compositions. Daniel is a multi-award-winning songwriter and musical storyteller and Limmud favourite. During lockdown they have been remotely collaborating for an album that will be released later this year: Daniel in the UK, Chava in Seattle (where she is also the Artist in Resident at Temple de Hirsh Sinai).

This should be a lovely concert with stereo high fidelity sound and the perfect way to end your Limmud day.
