The Ahavat Olam Ensemble
includes musicians from Jordan, Syria, Iran, Palestine, America and Israel.
"Music is by some accounts the only truly universal language. When musicians from both sides of the world’s most intractable conflicts come together, politics tend to disappear. Regardless of the tongue they speak, players communicate with the language they share; music." Rabbi Robert S. Goldstein.
I decided to name this ensemble after the known Jewish prayer: "Ahavat Olam," the "World Love" ensemble.
