Canadian-born and internationally renowned concert artist Batsheva will perform as part of West End Synagogue’s 2018 Concert and Cultural Series. Performing in Ladino, Yiddish, Hebrew and English, she will kick off this year’s event, “An Evening with Jon Meacham,” on Jan. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at West End Synagogue.
Batsheva has toured extensively with the Canadian Jewish Congress and has also toured, recorded and performed with the “Workmen’s Circle,” in New York under the direction of Zalmen Mlotek, current artistic director of the National Yiddish Theater.
Batsheva is also an award-winning songwriter. Her piece, “Song of Remembrance,” won the National Competition for Holocaust Literature sponsored by the Canadian Jewish Congress and is part of the official archives of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Her CD, “I, Batsheva, Singer,” has received critical and audience acclaim. She and her husband currently live in Nashville.
“We are fortunate to have such a unique performer right here in Nashville,” says West End Synagogue Rabbi Joshua Kullock. “She will be a wonderful addition to what promises to be a memorable evening of music and conversation.” For more information about Batsheva, visit her webiste at www.ibatshevasinger.com.
