Theodore Bikel 90th birthday performance

The great actor, folk musician, and activist Theodore Bikel gave a performance  to mark his 90th birthday in Washington DC, which I documented as part of a fundraising gala for Moment magazine.

He was, as always, in strong voice, and full of wisdom, energy, and ruach - the breath of a righteous soul.

Also pictured are musician/beat legend David Amram, folksinger Tom Paxton, and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who were part of this celebration. Not pictured are: Yiddish music maven Zalmen Mlotek, Professor Deborah Tannen and Grammy-winning folksingers Marcy Marxer and Cathy Fink.

Thanks to publisher/editor Nadine Epstein, Johnna Raskin, and Nadiv Marvi of Moment magazine for this opportunity and their help.
