WATCH NOW: Yihye Tov: A conversation/concert with David Broza

Watch here.

Written with Yonatan Geffen in 1977, Broza’s anthem “Yihye Tov” (Things Will Be Better) has never been more resonant. Jodi Rudoren, Forward editor-in-chief, talks with the famed Israeli singer-songwriter about his life in quarantine in New York City; his just-released instrumental album of Spanish guitar, En Casa Limón; and the prospect of Tu B’av without his predawn concert on Masada.

This is part of our new series, “#ForwardFocus: Talks in Trying Times,” in which Forward editors are moderating weekly talks with Jewish leaders working to build community through this crisis.
