As our artist in residence, the renowned performer and scholar Galeet Dardashti will co-lead Havdalah services with Cantor Jacob Niemi, followed by some additional music.

An Iranian-descended anthropologist and performer/composer, Dardashti is a trail-blazing performer, educator, and advocate of Middle Eastern and North African Jewish culture. As a performer/composer, Dardashti is the first woman to continue her family’s tradition of distinguished Persian and Jewish musicianship. She is widely known as leader/founder of the all-woman Middle Eastern Jewish ensemble Divahn, which released its newest album, Shalhevet, in 2020. Dardashti’s scholarship examines Israeli music/media and Mizrahi cultural politics; she is currently writing a book on the Mizrahi piyyut (sacred song) phenomenon in Israel. Dardashti offers lectures, workshops, and residencies on her artistic and academic work throughout the world. Read more about her here.
