Time For Another Asefa

Only in this case, it's not a ban, but a band. Asefa explores Sephardi piyutim as well as performs original compositions, blending Morrocan and jazz musical traditions with many other world music influences.

Bat HaRav

I just watched the film "The Rabbi's Daughter". It's a moving film about the daughter's of three well-known da'ati leumi rabbis who have chosen different paths than their families. In particular, what stands out to me is the connection (or possible connection) between an artistic nature and conflict with religion, or at least Orthodoxy... It's also moving to see the respect that secular Israeli's have for the rabbanim in the Da'ati Le'umi community. Food for thought...
