The Multimedia section intends to integrate my audiovisual resources and make them accessible on this blog.
I am an amateur singer-songwriter and I enjoy playing the guitar and writing songs (both music and lyrics).
I write popular (secular) music, mainly in the Folk/Rock genre but I also write (religious) liturgical compositions based on the texts in the siddur (Jewish prayer book). I am more than happy to play these (or more traditional liturgical compositions) in a congregational setting.
You can listen to a small selection of my (liturgical) music on my Bandcamp account.
I have made a series of Dutch-language videos called 'B'chol Levav'cha - met heel het hart' ('With the Whole Heart'). The purpose of each 15 minute instalment is to present practical Judaism in an accessible and entertaining light for a Dutch-language audience.
The series addresses the topics of lighting Shabbat candles, baking and taking challah, visiting the mikveh, wearing a tallit and wrapping tefillin.
You can watch these videos on my Vimeo account.
