Recorded at the Riverdale Y in NYC. Basya Schechter and her wonderful band (Megan Weeder on violin; Yoed Nir, cello; Uri Sharlin, piano; Rich Stein, percussion) perform a song cycle based on the great religious thinker and human rights activist Abraham Joshua Heschel's early Yiddish poetry.
This is a song /poem"My Song."
Cinematography by Steve Brand for his documentary work-in-progress on Heschel, "Praying With My Legs."
