In 2014, Julie released Anniversary, a retrospective collection celebrating her 25 years of composing, recording and performing Contemporary Jewish Music throughout the world.
Silver is always focused on writing, playing, traveling, mentoring up-and-coming singer-songwriters, participating in Social Justice projects and making the Jewish experience more meaningful. “I try to enhance the way people experience Judaism by adding my own take on our sacred texts” Silver says. “I also want people who have historically been marginalized to feel included in the Jewish community or in any community and to be encouraged to tell their stories and live their lives openly. Our tradition compels us to express ourselves…our joys, our hopes, our faith and our fears. The only path to healing is through sharing our stories with one another. As a songwriter, I write and sing my story and hope it resonates with people”
Julie whole-heartedly supports and is quite often the featured performer for many worldwide Jewish organizations including the Association for Reform Zionists of America (ARZA), The World Union of Progressive Judaism (WUPJ), The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), Hadassah, The Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), The Religious Action Council (RAC) and Women of the Wall in Israel. She also performs for American Jewish World Service and has performed and has served on faculty for The Wexner New Member Institute in Aspen, Colorado. In April of 2015, Julie helped lead a March of the Living trip through Poland and Israel.
In 2016 was given a lifetime achievement award by ARZA, in honor of her work in supporting pluralism, peace, and progressive actions in Israel.% | % | % | % | %
