"Your remarkable ingenuity in resetting very familiar Hebraic melodies into concert-jazz settings inspires a sense of renewed commitment to our Jewish heritage, and reminds us that
we are a surviving people precisely because of our abilities to adapt to new realms and bring our unique culture and philosophies always into the present."
Charles M. Mirotznik, Esq.

"The Heritage Ensemble concert at the Riverdale Y was superb. We enjoyed it so much as it encompassed both the Jewish music with which we are familiar and the jazz arrangements that we all love so much. . . .Your group is a wonderful way to introduce young people to jazz, a genre that seems unfamiliar to younger generations. It’s too good not to be shared by music lovers of all ages."
