Homesick and Homeless

By Annette Ezekiel

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2004

Ezekiel, a Jewish musician in a klezmer-rock band, writes about otherness as her identity, homelessness as her home. The band, Golem, recently recorded a new CD, "Homesick Songs", that explores the conflictual state of homesickness and longing through the lens of shtetlach, Eastern European towns. Jewish music produced outside Israel itself reflects this tension and appeals to young Jews who themselves feel homeless.
