Girls in Trouble Concert: Indie-Folk Midrashim About the Complicated Lives of Biblical Women

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Alicia Jo Rabins (voice, violin, looping pedal, guitar) and Aaron Hartman (bass) bring the ladies of Torah to life with original indie-folk songs in the voices of Miriam, Judith, Lilith, Tamar, and other women from Jewish texts. Alicia's classical violin training, love of folk and indie music, and background as a poet combine with her years of Jewish text study to offer an intimate and lyrical window onto the surprisingly relevant lives of these ancient women.

This session was made possible by funds from The Covenant Foundation.
