On Sunday, Aug. 19, in Fairfax, Virginia, musical group Re-Joyce! performed for the first gathering of “Art & Soul,” an inspirational new women’s program at Chabad of Northern Virginia. A monthly program brought to the community by the Jewish Learning Initiative (JLI) Rosh Chodesh Society, “Art & Soul” is designed to explore Judaism’s insights into the arts and how they beautify and transform our lives, one brushstroke at a time.
Re-Joyce! is a group of Jewish women whose love of music and Judaism brought them together to perform works by Jewish composers in a broad range of genres — from Broadway to classical to Chassidic melodies. Experienced pianist, music teacher, and choral director Joyce Friedman leads the group, which includes Cindy Cohen on flute, Nessyah Buder on saxophone, and Miriam Albright on vocals.
