Music is often touted as a means of bridging cultural, religious and even political discrepancies and has been termed by not a few as “a universal language.” Micah Hendler is not sure about that epithet.

Quite the opposite. The American- born choir director spends most of his waking hours getting the inclusive message out there, in Jerusalem and across the world.
