A confluence of Jewish history in words and music bringing together the rich heritage of Jews in Ireland and other countries. The Jews of the old cemetery in Dublin speak from beyond the grave, giving us an insight into their lives. The musical instruments which are mentioned in the poems are piano and violin which will accompany the spoken words. We will also explore the lyrical world of a Jewish boy who escapes Tsarist Russia to live side-by-side with gauchos in a Jewish colony in Argentina
