A Journey Through Ashkenaz: The Travels of Abraham Levie, 1719-1723

In 1719, the young Abraham Levie from Lemgo embarked on a journey that took him from the German-speaking lands via Moravia and Austria to Italy and Elba. His travelogue, written in Amsterdam, survived in manuscript form.

Simkhat hanefesh joins Abraham Levie on his travels and presents you Yiddish songs and instrumental music from the Renaissance and Baroque, related to places he visited. We will read short excerpts from his travelogue.

We look forward to welcoming you to a program of rediscovered Jewish music from the Renaissance and Baroque. simkhat hanefesh (Joy of the Soul)
