The Mogen David of Barth on the Baltic
Ron Levine is a Grammy Award Winning Fiddle player who combines Jazz, Blues, Country and Classical on the violin, mandolin and electric violin to produce his unique sound.
Ron's latest project, the Mogen David of Barth on the Baltic, endeavors to share the heroic story of his father's experiences as a Jewish POW in WWII. Henry Levine was one of the many throughout history who risked his life to pray to his god, but he went one step further, as the lawyer from Syracuse led clandestine Jewish services from memory for the other prisoners. Ron is sharing this incredible story through his music, through video documentary and through lectures to the community. His brother, Rick, has written a book about their father, and you can support him in sharing this inspiring story of courage by visiting his Indie Gogo page.
