“Jews in Music” Presented by The Genesis Prize Foundation
The Genesis Prize Foundation created “Jews in Music” to honor outstanding achievements by Jewish individuals in music throughout history. Because the Genesis Prize honors individuals for their extraordinary accomplishment in a particular field, The Foundation pays tribute to the field of the Laureate each year. “Jews in Music” was debuted at the 2016 Genesis Prize Ceremony in honor of virtuoso violinist Itzhak Perlman. Some of the musicians featured in the video include: Leonard Cohen, Carole King, Vladimir Vysotsky, Idan Raichel, Martha Argerich, Paul Simon, Evgeny Kissin, Billy Joel, Adam Levine, Drake, and many more.
