A Shabbaton exploring Judaism through art, dance, drama & music with Baysya Schechter and Peter Pitzele.

The earthy voice of Basya Schechter rings out in Pharaoh’s Daughter, a 7-piece world music ensemble that travels through key signatures and languages with a genre-bending sound · a vision of a new Middle East. Schechter is also musical director of Romemu, a progressive, spiritually adventurous community on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Her prayer project “Dumiya” was released last year, and she is now working on a collection called “Songs of Desire,” integrating texts from Songs of Songs.

Peter Pitzele has a PhD in literature from Harvard University. Through his involvement with Jewish and Christian communities and seminaries, he and his wife Susan developed Bibliodrama, a
form of biblical investigation and play for people of all ages. Bibliodrama is now recognized as a principal methodology in the field of contemporary midrash, and has opened new insights into ancient sources. Peter has taught Bibliodrama to rabbis, priests, lay people and families.
