The Nashville Chapter of Hadassah is planning an evening of food and song on Sunday, October 30 at West End Synagogue and invites all to attend. After a wine, hors d’oeuvres and dessert reception beginning at 5 pm, internationally known artist, Batsheva, will perform her program entitled, ”The Secret Jewish Soul of Leonard Cohen.” Originally from Toronto, and now based in Nashville, Batsheva has a robust following due to her ability to sing in English, Hebrew, Yiddish, and Ladino. To sample her superb voice, place your phone camera over the QR code in the ad.
Canadian singer, songwriter Leonard Cohen needs no introduction. His song, “Hallelujah," has been recorded by more artists than any other song in history. Batsheva has the only authorized translations of two of his songs from English to Hebrew and Yiddish.
Internationally renowned artist, Batsheva, will perform at Hadassah fundraiser to support Ukraine.
Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc., has been helping Ukrainians since the start of the conflict. Hadassah HMO (Hadassah Medical Organization) has to date sent 15 rotating teams of Hadassah doctors and nurses to the Polish border who work in makeshift clinics to treat the refugees. In addition, they have been training other medical professionals on how to deal with trauma, a subject the Hadassah doctors know only too well.
At the start of the conflict, Youth Aliyah Villages in Israel welcomed many young Ukrainians. Some of the refugees have moved on while others remain and are being educated alongside the other students who come from a myriad of countries.
