Songs of Our Lives: New Folk Music for Modern American Jews

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Jewish music need not be limited to prayers or sacred music, or to Hebrew and Yiddish, and need not be corny, parody or aimed at kids. George Aronson will share and discuss original folk songs in English reflecting our lives as American Jews: immigration stories, lessons from texts, and tales of being Jewish in multi-cultural settings.


George Aronson

George Aronson and his guitar have played Jewish music at summer camp in the 70s, MIT folk dancing in the 80s, Schechter retreats in the 90s and 00s, and song swaps through the years. He leads the chapel high holiday services, early Yizkor services, and other davening at Temple Israel (Sharon) and he knows many songs and tunes for Shabbat Zmirot.
