The Prince of Kosher Gospel returns to the JCC for another high-energy captivating performance. Joshua brings his extraordinary message of hope, unity and spirituality through Kosher gospel, a marriage of Jewish religious lyrics and meanings with the soulful sounds of American gospel music.
For Joshua Nelson, kosher gospel is a way to claim both parts of his identity as a Black Jew. Kosher gospel has been able to retain the same musical cultures of Black African Muslims and Jews with that soul-inflected vocalizations which filled the Black Hebrew synagogue Joshua attended as a child with his family, observant Jews who traced their lineage back to Senegal.
Come join us as we celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut as a community.

This event is made possible by support from: The Brotman Family, Brandeis Hillel Day School, Congregation Rodef Shalom, Congregation Kol Shofar and Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund
