I re-joined Local 802 last year after I was offered an opportunity to join the Off Broadway production of “Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish” on Stage 42. I’m so glad that I had the privilege to be part of this unique production. It was an exceptional experience with an outstanding cast and orchestra. I also enjoyed playing the Off Off Broadway show “Tango + Tango” at the Thalia Spanish Theatre in Queens along with Latin Grammy winner Raul Jaurena and other star tango musicians, singers and dancers. My musical goal in NYC is to play music to as many audiences as possible and keep being an integral part of the music community. I studied classical clarinet performance in Jerusalem and moved to NYC to earn my master’s degree at Mannes. I lead my own klezmer band called 12th Night Klezmer, and I’m a resident artist with the nonprofit organization “Music Talks,” which produces cross-genre music to audiences of all ages in the tri-state area. I believe music can help change the world for the better and I do my best delivering this message especially when I teach young musicians. My main teaching gigs are currently at the Abraham Joshua Heschel School and the Spence School in NYC.
