It’s the opening scene of the documentary “Itzhak” and is an exhibition of what will unfold: the story of the gifted and active musician, the devoted husband and family man, the philanthropist, the sensitive teacher, the good friend, the humble humanitarian, and the man proud of his Jewish heritage.
This is a celebration of his life’ as reported by Vicki Leopold for the Atlanta Jewish Times.
In this movie of top-notch clarity and acoustics, we see Itzhak and Toby, his wife, in their Manhattan apartment and their New York City life. We also see Tel Aviv, his home, and pieces of his performances around the world.
