Renard Lecture: Sing Unto God a New Song: Bob Dylan and the ‘60s Folk Revival

Are art and religion the same or different? How much, if at all, did Jewishness influence the music of Dylan and other major folk figures? We will sing and listen to music, Jewish and otherwise, of the 1960s folk revival, and explore the Jewish connections. Live piano performance accompanies this lecture.

Randy Herman, pianist, singer, and songwriter, has recorded and produced videos of his own songs, and has performed throughout the world. While working as a professional musician, he became increasingly interested in Judaism, eventually attending Cantorial school at the Jewish Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 2008, and has served for the last eight years as cantor of Bet Torah, a Conservative synagogue in Mount Kisco, NY.

PLEASE NOTE: Doors Open at 9:30 am
