“I came to my Jewish identity through the violin. Through klezmer and the traditional music of the Eastern European shtetl, my violin can speak in Yiddish; the ornaments, the sounds, the inflections of the Yiddish language and I feel a spread of belonging, a deep connection to the past.”

Sophie Solomon is a violinist and artistic director of the Jewish Music Institute
