New Jewish Music & Radical Jewish Culture

By Marion S. Jacobson

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2010

The author discusses the radical Jewish musician Jewlia Eisenberg and her "Bowls Project," a song cycle and performance art installation based on inscriptions found on Babylonian Jewish incantation bowls from Late Antiquity. This project, the author explains, is part of a larger effort by Eisenberg to merge Jewish ritual and culture with gender politics, subversion of tradition, punk and heavy metal music, and other modern artistic impulses.
