Lee Penn Sky releases his new album Lean into the Letter, which chronicles an amazing journey that started with the discovery of a letter sent from Israel in 1958. This letter, found in the back of a drawer in a purse that belonged to Lee’s Great-Grandmother Sadie, was translated at a local synagogue, revealing the author as Sadie’s nephew, Jakob Nistel, thought to have perished with the rest of Sadie’s family in the Holocaust. Jakob detailed the perils of evading the Nazis until the end off the war, hiding underground, to ultimately immigrate to Israel to start a new life. Through the magic of the internet, Lee’s family located Jakob’s descendants in Israel, resulting in Lee, his mother, brother, and cousins embarking on a pilgrimage to Israel to connect with their history, their family, and their future.
