Songs of Hope and Resistance, with Mark Levy

In April of 1943, Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto began an uprising that lasted for months. Mark Levy will tell the story of the resistance through songs, (mostly in Yiddish), poems, narratives and even jokes from inside the ghettos and camps. 

This event is presented by, and will be held at, Temple Beth El in Aptos, and will also be Zoomed. For more info and registration, click on Read More, below. 

Mark Levy has performed and taught in the US for 45 years at temples, synagogues, JCC’s, Lehrhaus Judaica, Workmen’s Circle, and other Jewish groups. He has appeared throughout the country and abroad and is a singer and lecturer who specializes in older Judaic folk music in Yiddish, Hebrew, and Ladino, klezmer history and theory, and Jewish music history in general. Mark recently moved from the Santa Cruz area to Florence, Oregon.
