Tovah Feldshuh: The Archive as Alexandria

October 21, 2020

Tovah Feldshuh hasn't let the COVID pandemic slow her down. The star of stage and screen has used the time to continue telling her story—and that of her mother—in a new book currently in the works.

Now that her first draft is done, she took some time to catch up with us about her work on the Genesis Suite, and share her thoughts on the significance of the Archive's mission.

"The Archive shows us, time and again, the intertwining of American culture with Jewish music, and vice versa. As the decades roll on, the Milken Archive may serve as our great ‘Alexandria’--and become one of the largest and most significant libraries of Jewish Music, rare and beautiful, of the modern Western world."

Learn more about the Tovah Feldshuh's latest endeavors and her feelings about Jewish music.
