The Adventures of Sender the Klopper

Western scripture records that

the initial act of creation is Light.

We have long seen illumination

as a metaphor for wisdom.

Light of awareness, light of

understanding, Divine light within,

the light of kindness that makes us

human — it seems natural that we

seek illumination; In Proverbs it says, 

“The Light of God is the soul of mankind.”

Hazzan Steve presents an acoustic concert of songs and stories, new and old, to shine a light on us all as fellow travelers, and to uncover the holy sparkles of light glinting off everyone and everything.  

(60-90 minute evening concert)
