In any case I would have become a musician, but now I have become a Jewish musician,
my perception of music shaped by learning the many texts of the great Jewish mystics
pertaining to music and by listening to the melodies those spiritual giants themselves composed.
To pave a new way is always extremely painful. I offer immense recognition for
all these musicians whose personal example and music enabled me not to give up
[not to abandon my path].
It is written in David's psalms that one who seeds in tears will reap in great joy.
Perhaps the time for harvesting has arrived for me; perhaps this path which was so
often impassable for me can now become an open highway on which thousands of musicians
can travel. Perhaps the pages of this website can constitute a pioneering voyage for
all those who want to take this road.
