Shoshana explored how traditional and contemporary stories and songs continue to influence humanity as well as Jewish culture. She began with the story of how she became Canada’s first ordained Maggidah (Jewish storyteller) before regaling her audience with a powerful story of the first professional storyteller sent out by the Hasidic sage, the Baal Shem Tov (z”l), in 1760, adapted from Yitzhak Buxbaum’s informative book, “Storytelling and Spirituality in Judaism.” You will also hear a profound personal narrative, “Jerusalem Walk,” highlighted with Talmudic tales, original melodies and sacred texts in both English and Hebrew. Due to a recording glitch, you won’t see Shoshana’s face the whole time but you will always hear her stories and songs.
