Observe the holiest night of the Jewish year with Because Jewish at services led by Rabbi Dan Ain and The Sway Machinery’s Jeremiah Lockwood.
Jeremiah Lockwood‘s music is born out of an apprenticeship with the late Piedmont Blues master Carolina Slim and an intense study of the music of his grandfather, the legendary Cantor Jacob Konigsberg. Seamlessly channeling these two influences, he chants traditional prayers like Kol Nidre and Avinu Malkeinu with an old-world wail — while often accompanying himself on blues guitar. Joining Rabbi Dan and Lockwood are keyboardist Shoko Nagai, drummer John Bollinger and Jewish meditation leader Miriam Eisenberger. The Times of Israel says: “Because Jewish represents the zeitgeist of Jewish Brooklyn, circa 2016. Its raison d’être is to offer community and presence amidst the racing speed and technological isolation of the here and now.”
