This week, host Jay Sanderson speaks with world music superstar, producer, composer, and recording artist Idan Raichel. Idan traces his love of music to his childhood in Israel, sharing early memories with Jay and how they influenced his career as an artist.  They also discuss modern Judaism and, as Idan puts it, the need to “update the software for future generations” to keep them engaged and connected to Jewish life.

Idan will be on tour from February 17 – March 1, 2018, ending in Los Angeles. Get more information and see him in concert!
