Monajat (Fervent Prayer) is a multimedia concert series, an initiative of the New Jewish Culture Network. Monajat is inspired by Selihot, the poetic prayers of forgiveness recited during the month preceding the Jewish High Holidays according to Middle Eastern tradition. Monajat combines participatory workshops, talks, prayer services, and other educational programs to enhance the spiritual and cultural experience. Galeet re-imagines the Selihot ritual in collaboration with an acclaimed ensemble of musicians, an electronic soundscape, and dynamic video projections by video artist and designer Dmitry Kmelnitsky.
