To hear all the fascinating Jewish stories and songs would take more than 1001 nights—and days. Stories have the power to transform and inspire. With our voices we can create bonds and lasting memories between people while we transmit Jewish values and traditions. Gerard Edery and Peninnah Schram combine their vibrant talents to bring you an intimate connection with the Ashkenazi and Sephardic oral traditions.

Gerard and Peninnah have been performing together for 20 years to enthusiastic audiences at Jewish Festivals, Synagogues, Jewish Community Centers, storytelling festivals and concert series worldwide.

This program can be tailored for audiences of all ages and is also available with guest musicians.
