Celebrating Neshama — and a Lab/Shul mention

JTA recently published an article on Neshama Carlebach and the incredible work she’s been doing.

True to her roots, Carlebach’s work as a female performing artist is grounded in Jewish tradition. Yet she continually breaks new ground. Last year, she performed at an interfaith peace summit at Mt. Fuji, Japan and at the gates of Auschwitz on Yom Hashoah. She has recorded an album and performed widely with an African-American Baptist church choir. This weekend, she will headline the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism centennial in Baltimore with Josh Nelson, who produced her upcoming album, “Soul Daughter,” inspired by the Broadway show and scheduled for release before hannukah. The pair will also perform at the Union for Reform Judaism biennial in December.

In September, Carlebach joined with Storahtelling theater troupe founder Amichai Lau-Lavie to help lead High Holidays services in New York through Lau-Lavie’s new project, Lab/Shul.
