Jewish Musicians Against the Israeli Occupation

DONATE →
This is viewer supported news

Well, today we are talking about cultural resistance. And we are joined by two musicians who have chosen to make a political statement as artists, to define themselves as American Jews against the occupation of Palestine. Stefany Anne Golberg and Myla Goldberg (no relation to each other) are members of the Galerkin Method, the band we have been hearing today. This week, which marks the 35th anniversary of the 1967 war and occupation of Palestine, they have chosen to hold an event against the occupation. It will take place in New York at Galapagos Artspace in Brooklyn at 9 on Saturday.

Guests:

  • Stefany Anne Golberg, vocalist and dulcimer player for the Galerkin Method. She organized Saturday’s event in Brooklyn, Jewish Musicians Against Israeli Occupation.
  • Myla Goldberg, accordion player for the Galerkin Method. She is also the author of the best-selling novel, ??The Bee Season.
