Haftarah for the Earth

“At The Shalom Center ‘s request, Hazzan Jack Kessler and his student Daniella Forstater actually created an intergenerational English-language Haftarah – the medium is the message —-  for our day by taking passages from Greta Thunberg’s famous UN speech on saving Earth from utter destruction and intertwining it with passages from Malachi, shaping the passages on saving Earth from utter destruction according to Haftarah trope and then doing the chanting themselves.”

for more information, the audio files, and the text with trope marks.
