Join Maestro Joshua Jacobson and the Zamir Chorale of Boston for a celebration of
well-known works and hidden gems by Israel’s greatest composers, including Yehezkel
Braun‘s dramatic “Magash Ha-kesef,” Naomi Shemer‘s mystical “Shirat Ha-asavim,”
Gil Aldema‘s joyous “Ashira Liydiyday,” Moshe Wilensky‘s exuberant “Uri Tsiyon,”
