Lullabies of Longing & Loss: A Global Perspective of Mothers’ Voices

Please join us for a special International Women’s Day event where we will welcome musician, storyteller and peacemaker Hanna Yaffe for an evening of storytelling and song. Hanna will share with us
– 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,
– Lullabies in English, Hebrew, Yiddish and German drawing in particular on those about living peacefully with people from another religion/culture, and
– Tales from her research into multicultural lullabies, focusing on Kenyan, Arabic and Vietnamese.
You can find out more about Hanna’s use of lullabies to emphasise our shared humanity on her website. www.lullabies-of-loss.org
