Notes Motivated by a desire to preserve the essence of Jewish culture that was nearly destroyed by the Nazi holocaust, this album highlights folk songs of Russian Jewry as the last remnant of European Jews' spiritual glory and cultural splendor. Singing in both Hebrew and Yiddish, baritone Reuven Frankel honors the accomplishments of the past as he looks toward the future.
