Israel & Jewish Educational Programming
A Journey Through Jewish Roots | In relevance to Modern Society
Workshop speaks of all the 'aliyot' of Israel's history and the music that came alongside them. This workshop is done together with the audience, singing and dancing with the group, creating an intimate and animated authentic Jewish and Israeli experience; building a living time machine where we experience the deep emotions and feelings that penetrate the heart of every Jew - whether in Israel or in the diaspora.
One of our more popular workshops that have been presented worldwide in schools and community centers.
'The Last 70 Years' | A Complete Israeli Musical Journey
This workshop provides a journey through each decade of the last 70 years since the establishment of Israel; offering a living taste of some of the top all-time hits of Israel which shaped its culture, people, cuisine, and society. The session is interactive, involving the audience at all time and is led by the experience educational team of The Shuk.
What is Israeli Music?
During this workshop, different genres are performed live and the audience is asked what characterizes and makes each song an 'Israeli' song. Here, each audience member, engages in self-discovery and finding his or her own place within their personal lineage amongst the Jewish people and world Jewry and recognized the extent of the melting pot that is Israeli music. This workshop exhibits music of Eastern, Mizrachi, Eastern European, South and North American Jewry.
