Mockingbirds and Israeli Intelligence
Summer 2002, URJ Greene Family Camp
While at URJ Greene Family Camp in the summer of 2002 I was walking back to my room late at night after a staff reception. As I walked across the field to my room I could distinctly hear two Mockingbirds chirping to each other from trees some 200 yards from each other. I put myself in between the two trees and started to record. These mockingbirds are the very ones that I recorded and used for Hashkiveinu on our album, My Heart Is In The East. This out-take comes as an Israeli staff member walks up to me and asked me what in the world I was doing huddling in the dark of that field.
