High Holiday music and a delightful smattering of other stuff on Mishkan’s SoundCloud site
Exodus Redux. A night of yoga, music, meditation, and raising awareness about the human trafficking trade. Just close your eyes and listen to the song- the lighting doesn’t lend itself to iPhone video, but the sound is great. Min HaMetsar/From the Depths- a Hallel kirtan, celebrating the possibility of openness, change and transformation (bad video, great music- just listen to the music)
