Shed a Little Light – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day


Comments: 2 Comments  |  Category: Announcements, News, Our Fans

Our newest video celebrates a different kind of holiday than usual, but one that’s more important now than ever. We consider ourselves very fortunate to join Naturally 7, one of the best musical acts of our day, in covering James Taylor’s Shed a Little Light in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2016. 

We’re deeply committed to our Jewish Heritage, but we’re also proud American citizens and citizens of the world. In that sense, it’s very special for us to celebrate the life and work of a man who gave the world so much. We filmed the video for Shed a Little Light at the Lincoln Memorial, the site of Dr. King’s iconic “I Had a Dream” speech, a speech which has and will continue to inspire billions in their search for a more just world.

In an era in which so many wish to divide, we united with new musical friends to remind the world that when we work together we can be stronger than the sum of our parts.

    Is Luther King was not an anti-Semite ?

    Dear Moriah,
    The opposite, actually! He said that anyone who was anti-Israel was actually an anti-Semite, and he was very pro-Israel and pro-Jewish. I heard this personally from the late Rabbi Arthur Lelyveld z”l, who marched with King in Selma AL in 1962, and who was the one who had convinced Pres. Truman to vote to recognise the State of Israel in 1948.
    The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great Christian Zionist. Sadly, the US president today, and a lot of the Black leaders in USA are not, to put it mildly.
