This Land Is Your Land

Published Friday, June 5, 2020

In times of despair and rupture, music can bring us to our knees and it can lift us back up again. When we sing together, we are reminded of our shared humanity and of all that is possible when many voices become one. We sing together when we celebrate and when we mourn. We sing together when we pray and when we protest. As JCC children from the New York Island to the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream Waters come together to sing, let us open our hearts and our melodies to include every voice, for this land belongs to all of us only when it belongs to each of us.
