Klezmer in Tzfat - on Radio Free Nachlaot!

Tzfat's annual Klezmer Festival is in full swing and Lorelai brought her portable radio station with her all the way from Jerusalem ... we hope to be able to broadcast live from the Carlebach Stage at the Beirav Synagogue's "Songs and Stories of Shlomo Carlebach" tonight around 8pm.

Everybody knows that Tzfat is to Jerusalem what Nachlaot is to The Old City ... they're connected by an invisible umbilical cord. There are four special Holy Cities in the Land of Israel, corresponding to the four elements: Jerusalem (Fire), Tzfat (Air), Hevron (Earth) and Tiveria (Water). We hope to be able to broadcast live from all four locations one day! Meanwhile, thanks to the magic of wireless internet and the ingenuity of our friend Andy Alpern, we've already brought you many wonderful concerts live from the Khan of the White Donkey in Tzfat ... we're already mamash so very connected!!!

Stay connected with us at Radio Free Nachlaot. Today's schedule looks like this:

2pm: Rabbi Chaim Richman's Parsha Shavua - "Shoftim"
3pm: Rav Avraham Sutton's Series on the Jewish Holiday Cycle - Elul, part 2
5pm: Rav Ozer Bergman's Rebbe Nachman Shiur from last Thursday August 5th.

Interspersed throughout the Torah is music from Simply Tsfat, The New Klezmer Trio and David Grisman's "Songs of Our Fathers"

6pm: "A 3-Cornered Shoe" - The Soundtrack from "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" followed by Ritchie Havens from Woodstock and Otis Redding from Monterey Pop. The 3-Cornered (triangular) shoe is a concept from Rebbe Nachman's story "The Tam and the Cocham" (the Simpleton and the Sophisticate). 

8pm - if everything goes well - we'll be live from Tzfat's Klezmer Festival!!! Stay with us!
