Students Host Israeli Cafe Night with Ami Yares

While The Davidson School students are always busy with their academic work and hands-on training in Jewish education, they also find opportunities to share their interests with one another. MA students recently hosted a shulchan ivri, or Hebrew table, sponsored by The Davidson School Student Association. We enjoyed relaxing, practicing our Hebrew language skills and enjoying delicious food.

We savored the live music of Ami Yares, a Jaffa-based singer/songwriter. Ami performs original, socially-conscious multicultural songs in English, Hebrew and Arabic

Ami spoke about why he chose to perform at this event:

I've always had an attachment to the Hebrew language. Especially as a musician, it is an 
incredibly challenging and enjoyable experience to try and capture the nuances of Hebrew
in song. The Hebrew cafe program gave me the opportunity to share my experience learning 
the language and the additional challenge of making it sound like music to other educators 
with their own affinity for Hebrew.
