At 60 David Broza is remarkably unchanged from the young singer-songwriter I first met 23 years ago. The sideburns and hair are white and there is less of the latter, but he still smiles easily, laughs heartily and engages warmly. Musically he is as protean as ever, constantly trying out new collaborators, looking for new poems to set to his distinctive music, testing and prodding his audiences and himself.

David Broza’s Jerusalems

“[What’s So Funny ‘Bout] Peace Love & Understanding” David Broza asks, in his recording of Nick Lowe’s song on his new CD, “East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem.” That song, with the accompaniment of the Jerusalem Youth Chorus of the Jerusalem International YMCA – a group of Jewish and Arab teens -- is now being played regularly on Galei Zahal, Israel Army Radio.

David Broza is one of those fortunate artists who are never at a loss for a new project. When he was interviewed in this newspaper a year ago, he was talking about an album of musical settings of poetry by Pablo Neruda. That project, he said a few weeks ago, is still going on, but it got shoved to the back of the queue by another long-time dream turned into reality: a record and documentary film that put him in the studio with Israeli and Palestinian musicians for a program of songs about peace; the CD was recorded in east Jerusalem.

David Broza’s latest CD/documentary film project is “East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem.”

Last Chance: Palestinian-Israeli Harmony … At The Metropolitan Room

Peace seemed not only possible, but was palpable this week at the Metropolitan Room as Mira Awad sang her own compositions in Arabic, Hebrew and English. Her words are earthy, her voice transcendent and the yearning for something better remains in the air.

I’ve had some incredible Shabbat experiences in my lifetime thus far…but this past Friday and Saturday have won the prize for best ever. Biennial attendees woke up Friday morning, and most of us only thought about one word: “Obama.” Yes, friends, President Barack Obama was going to be paying us all a visit at the 71st URJ Biennial here in Washington, D.C.
