Rebecca is honored to have been commissioned to write a new song to the text of Psalm 98. The new song, entitled "Hariu", uses both Hebrew and English text, and is intended for camp/youth settings, but can be sung and enjoyed by all ages. More information will follow soon...
Rebecca is very excited to be participating in a wonderful new project that will be published by The Creating Calm Publishing Network. "Music - The Carrier of Intention in 49 Jewish Prayers". Each of the fifty or so participants (musicians, cantors, rabbis, and singers) in this project have been asked to choose a piece of Jewish music, liturgy or Torah passage to focus on as they tell their story of intention and music. http://www.creatingcalmnetworkpublishinggroup.com/1/category/rebecca-schwartz/1.html
