Image of a prayerbookAccess Students and community members are invited to join Professor Naomi Sokoloff for a screening of an episode from the Israeli television series Ha’Ivrim (“The Writers”) about the Sephardic cantor and hymnist Rabbi David Buzaglo.

The Moroccan-born rabbi, considered the greatest Hebrew liturgical poet of the 20th century, took inspiration from all sources, including even Arab pop music in the synagogue while remaining faithful to a musical tradition dating back to Andalusian Spain.

Professor Sokoloff will lead a discussion after the screening.

Please bring a lunch; the Stroum Center will provide complimentary tea, coffee and cookies.

The film is in Hebrew with English subtitles.

Co-sponsored with UW’s Department of Near Eastern Language and Civilization.
