I have been awarded the coveted position of Rita Poretsky Artist in Residence at this coming summer’s National Havurah Committee’s Summer Institute, taking place August 5 – 11 at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire.  In keeping with the NHC’s motto “The Torah cannot be acquired except in fellowhip” and this year’s theme “Count Our Days,”  I will be working with participants on a multi-arts program focused on the plight of needleworkers past and present.  We will study history and Yiddish song, and prepare a presentation in the form of a massive ‘cranky’ – a low-tech, high energy theater-in-a-box that will engage people of all ages in traditional papercutting, shadow puppetry, collage, singing, and musical accompaniment to the final presentation at week’s end.  To learn more about the Institute, click HERE.

In addition to the artist in residence program, I am thrilled that I’ll be able to join my daughter Yona Leviton Gorelick to offer a Shabbat afternoon song program!  I’ll also be presenting a concert on Tuesday night at the Institute.
