At Timbrels of Miriam conference 3.8.1992 at University of Judaism, I gave art show to 18 artists,
including only one male on International Women's Day, and
Charles was the solo man!
Happy to join Joan Carl, at her "Retrospective" artist reception filling many gallery rooms. Joan's sculptures, paintings, and drawings represent her love for life. I'm blessed to have a Joanie original. When I met Joan over 3 decades ago she had been president of The LA Artists Association and I was Arts editor of the Jewish Calendar Magazine. So happy to see Joan celebrating in community of students and admirerers. Mazal Tov

Baruch Dayan HaEmet. SHOSHANA Sarah. Shoshana bat Avraham. My very first djembe teacher. She was my inspiration to play. I would watch her play with Reb Shlomo. Shoshana loved accompanying Reb Shlomo both on piano and djembe.
Shoshana's music was Divine. We used to dance together in her home (near Mahane Yehuda) in Jerusalem to her piano music, and she said she had never before done that, dance while listening to her own music tape which was not yet produced. We saw our dancing shadows on her wall with light streaming in. (I wrote a review in the Jewish Calendar Magazine and she loved it.)
"May the one who spent her life using her music to heal others now find eternal healing & wholeness beneath the wings of Everlasting Love."
Shoshannah Sarah "has passed away after a battle with Cancer. She was a deeply spiritual woman, an accomplished musician with several CDs available on ITunes, a Wellness and health expert, a raw food chef, and a beautiful person."
May Shoshana Sarah's neshama soar to Shmayim. May her memory be for a blessing. May she dance and play with angels.
