Yair Harel and Tafillalt: Lamp of the Covenant | The CJM, 11.14.2014 Noon

In advance of this winter’s installation of Sacramento-based artist Dave Lane’s monumental sculpture, Lamp of the Covenant, The CJM will offer a free lunchtime concert featuring Israeli visiting artist Yair Harel and his innovative ensemble, Tafillalt. The group will present personal interpretations of Jewish texts through a selection of piyyutim (Jewish liturgical poems) that are complementary of the themes in Lamp of the Covenant including the ideas of creation, how the lamp signifies the presence of the divine, and how light embodies the human relationship with the cosmos.
