Soul Brew Liberation Sessions: Aviva Chernick
In celebration of the Passover season, we’re brewing the spirit of liberation at Beth Tzedec with Soul Brew: Liberation Sessions. This short series of conversations with artists, scholars and activists, led by Rabbi Rachel “Bluth” Rosenbluth, will explore slavery, climate change, racial justice, spiritual liberation and gender.
Today’s guest is Aviva Chernick, a renowned Jewish musician, student and teacher of the voice as Healing. Aviva is a queer artist and Beth Tzedec’s artist-in-residence. Her original music is inspired by gorgeous and diverse musical legacies, weaving Ladino, Hebrew, English and Yiddish, melody and words, into a rich sound journey. She is a teacher of meditation, leading the community she founded, Neyshev, and an educator of soulful Jewish wisdom.
