– Anecdotes from her life as a religious woman taking small steps towards peace in Israel/Palestine,
– Stories from Hasidic sources as well as stories from other cultures with a similar message,

Living the life of a would-be ardent peacemaker, Hanna Yaffe uses music and stories to create healing, love and blessing. “Lullabies from Jerusalem” and “Birth in a Time of Bloodshed” are Hanna’s award winning CD’s. She has attempted to be a humanist and spiritual peace activist since her teens.
Born in London, she practices an observant Jewish lifestyle, regularly leading prayers at her Synagogue, and teaching traditional Jewish chants. She has performed at the Edinburgh Festival of Spirituality, The World Parliament of Religions, St Ethelburga’s and numerous other venues in the UK and abroad. She lives in Jerusalem with her husband, and near seven wonderful grandchildren.
