A Ginsburg
01:11:17
Was Kaplun a soldier posted in Yamit during the evacuation? Was and he living there? How did he come to be there?

pour fury....from Haggadah- pour out your wrath
Mel Barenholtz

Only in the English translation. The two Hebrew words do NOT match the Haggadah.
Ed Grossman
01:25:15
I was in Di Zahav--on the Red Sea side--while the Sinai phased transfer was occurring. It was a hippy colony and some wanted to stay there in spite of the transfer. Somewhat surreal.
Mj Levison

Heather
01:34:34
and justly so..
Heather
01:36:17
"justly so" refers to the Bedouins returning to their land from which Moshe Dayan evacuated them
Yael Gott
01:37:10
Many of us living in Israel felt it would not be a worthwhile sacrifice, but we were wrong. It did lead to an extended peace with Egypt, which has been a been a tremendous blessing.

The music is a wonderful opportunity to get a feeling of a private concert even if the audio quality is not the best.
Yael Gott
01:58:32
The music came through beautifully for me
Jon Tepper
01:58:50
Most interruptions are interference from someone else's mic being open.

I thought it was wonderful! I didn't notice anything breaking up. Thank you Rachel!
Bill Novak

It sounded good to me. The problem on Zoom is when musicians play together from different places.
Ed Grossman
01:59:08
Sometimes you need to make sure you check "original sound" on your screen to improve music.
Sarah Schachter
01:59:10
Gal's music was wonderful. Keep the music coming!
Varda Farber
01:59:14
We heard the music very well.
Deborah Chodrow
01:59:19
It would be helpful if people would stop their video so that the quality might be better!!
Joan Borkow

Gal, what is the name oof a CD on Apple Music?
Gal Klein
02:03:55
well, search for the following in YouTube / Apple music:Ramzailech - a very hardcore klezmer band, listen to it only if you're up fo wild party :)Di Gasn Trio - my traditional klezmer band,all of my music (well, 90% of the repertoire) is an original compositions of me and my musicians friend.
Jon Tepper
02:06:16
Musicians have same problem here in the States, since all concert tours are cancelled. Many are doing 'house concerts' on their website and/or YouTube, and ask for donations to help buy food and pay the rent.. If you have a favorite group in the US or in Israel, Goggle to their website and see if they have a virtual concert scheduled, or if a recording of a recent concert is available.
Barbara
02:06:33
It’s terrific!!!
Harriet

Ed Grossman
02:18:31
Rachel: Wasn't the experience of the Red Sea evacuation quite different from the Yamit evacuation--in that the transition was a smoother one? Did snorkeling at Di Zahav--lovely.
Elisheva Edelson
02:21:43

Frieda Robins
