In a performance-reading, Toronto native and New York-based Glazer shares his lyrical translations alongside the original Hebrew poems, taking on topics ranging from magic and mysticism to doubt and death. He will be accompanied by leading world music performers Aviva Chernick, Aaron Lightstone, Waleed Abdulhamid, Jeff Wilson and Sundar Viswanathan, with guests Cantor Aaron Bensoussan and Ernie Tollar. Featuring a closing set from Jaffa Road, who have put these lively poems to music on their two Juno-nominated albums.

There will be a post-show reception and book-signing with Passover-friendly sweets and drink specials.
