NORWICH – Internationally renowned musician, performer, activist and educator Peri Smilow is set to be at the Norwich Jewish Center this Sunday, May 1, as the Center’s second featured guest in its ongoing cultural events series.
Smilow is said to have a unique ability to move people with her music, singing and speaking. She aims to impact children and adults to gain understanding and make connections with others of various ethnic and religious backgrounds.
“She is passionate in her commitment to community and in making social change,” read a release from the Norwich Jewish Center. “She combines her love of all things Jewish with an ability to touch people with her words and music – singing and playing – to transmit a deep love of heritage and people who want to make a difference.”
Smilow’s works have been heard not only throughout the US, but also in Canada, England, Singapore and Israel.
Her music is not only based on her faith, but also on her experiences as a cancer survivor, wife, and mother. She celebrates the importance of her relationships with loved ones, friends, and the greater community.
When asked why Smilow was chosen as the second guest in the Center’s cultural series, he had a plethora of reasons.
