Cantor Evan Kent’s “Shards: Putting The Pieces Together”

June 28 @ 10:00 am

About Shards: Putting The Pieces Together

“Shards” celebrates the strength it takes to break apart the things that are holding you back and then to travel as far as it takes to begin to put the pieces together anew to build a better life.

In 2013, Evan Kent moved from Los Angeles to Jerusalem. This one-person musical chronicles his story of immigration interwoven with the tale of his grandparents’ immigration from Russia to New York in 1908. It is the story of the continual search for home, homeland, and along the way discovering what you didn’t even know you had lost.
