Speaking of Victoria Hanna ...

YALE DAILY NEWS: Israeli singer Victoria Hanna visits Slifka Center (Helena Lyng-Olsen).
Hanna is from Jerusalem and has lived there all her life. She composes original songs that she publishes through YouTube, which have garnered millions of views. She sings in Hebrew, and in 2015, Forbes listed her as one of Israel’s 50 most influential women. Hanna also sang at the 2017 Maccabiah Games, the third largest sporting competition in the world.

Hanna’s talk focused on the correspondence between saying letters of the Hebrew alphabet and moving one’s body in a space.
For more on Ms. Hannah's music, which is influenced by Jewish esoteric writings such as Sefer Yetsirah, see yesterday's post and links.
