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. Mind you, it’s not that he is against the idea of musical engagement bringing people from diverse backgrounds together.

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.
