Russell Steinberg, noted Los Angeles-based and internationally recognized composer, conductor, lecturer and musicologist, has long been deeply attracted to the writings and teachings of Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis.  Spiritual leader of Valley Beth Shalom Synagogue for over forty years, Rabbi Schulweis is considered to be one of the leading influences on Jewish life in our time.   Realizing the potential of this collaboration, the Harold M. Schulweis Institute commissioned Dr. Steinberg to compose a group of songs based on the writings of Rabbi Schulweis.  After several personal conversations, a group of meditations was selected to be the source of inspiration for this work.
