Jessica Leash, cantorial soloist, has the inspirational voice of an angel with the power to soar above a thousand other singers.
During the final concert of the 2014-15 season Jessica will feature a snapshot of the times in which Jewish Renewal came to be, some of its influences, and a taste of what Renewal music brings to contemporary Jewish life with a unique global mix of popular folk songs from the 60’s and 70’s, some gospel, Hassidic niggunim, a group of Yiddish songs, Shlomo Carlebach tunes, some call and response chants, and Reform Jewish tunes by Debbie Friedman. She will be accompanied by Fred Ross-Perry on guitar and Ken Mowrey on percussion.
