Soul-touching singer/ songwriter, national touring and recording artist Laura Berman from Portland, Ore. performs in concert, culminating a Feast of Learning Day at Congregation Beth Israel (more information to come).

Laura Berman has reached acclaim for her soul-touching vocal and honest, lyrical poetry. Her style and approach is reminiscent of the likes of Carole King and Carly Simon. She has five studio albums to date, and has toured nationwide. Her credits include opening for NYC-based pop-rock band, October Project, singing backup with Enya on the David Letterman Show, performing alongside authors Neale Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson, and Oprah’s confidant Rev. Michael Beckwith.

She has a featured song in the children’s film Clifford’s Really Big Movie. Laura returned to her Jewish heart and spirituality at Havurah Shir Hadash synagogue in Ashland Oregon, and had the honor of singing with the music team for two Reb Zalman Shabbatot there. She performs at synagogues, inspiring listeners with her unique and modern interpretation of sacred prayers and incorporating her original song compositions into the service as a fresh way of presenting Torah.
