"From individuals who just love to sing, to very long-standing members of choirs...the sound we made together was incredible." - Cantor Zoe Jacobs reflecting on the first MRJ Music Conference
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Taubman’s songs bridge traditional Jewish themes and ancient teachings with passages and experiences of contemporary Jewish life. He speaks a language that is accessible to both children and adults; his recordings weave song and spirit into the fabric of Jewish life.
Cantor Zoe Jacobs, a driving force behind the MRJ Music Conference, reflects back on the first conference. “The energy and musicality at that conference was outstanding, and we represented a vast range of experience and knowledge. From individuals who just love to sing, to very long-standing members of choirs, to madrichim (leaders) from RSY-Netzer, to rabbis, to music directors – the list was endless, and the sound we made together was incredible.”
In addition to his concert, Taubman will also be involved with programming at the conference including a Kabbalat Shabbat, Friday night dinner.
