Growing up behind the Iron Curtain of the USSR,  Maestro Israel Edelson knew next to nothing about his Jewish heritage as he worked alongside renowned conductor  Maestro Leonard Bernstein as assistant conductor. But in a series of 'nothing-is-as-strange-as-real-life' events, a chance encounter with the  Lubavitcher Rebbe made it clear he was to him that his search would take him deeper than music alone. 

An all-original production,  "Wandering SOULS, Wandering CANDLES: A True Story" shares this deeply personal and soul-glistening story of wandering and purpose. A film accompanies Edelson, a gifted pianist, as he performs his sparkling interpretations of the songs that inspired his journey - together reliving a story that will resonate with all of us who have 'wandered' a day or two in our lives.
