FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE VIOLINS OF HOPE SHABBAT SERVICE

SOUND ON/OFF

On this Shabbat prior to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, one of the violins that will be a part of the Violins of Hope exhibition — all instruments that survived the Holocaust — will join us and its story will be shared.

with:

Max Beker played his violin in some of the world’s most unusual musical ensembles, from the Tango Orchestra in Stalag VIIIA prisoner of war camp to the Ex-Concentration Camp Orchestra in Bavaria.

The instrument that made that journey with him – and wound up in his post-WWII home in Brooklyn – is one of the treasured Violins of Hope that Temple Emanu-El expected would be on display this month at our Bernard Museum and played in a special concert in our sanctuary.

Although the arrival of these instruments that survived the darkest days of the Jewish people is delayed until 2023, we are honored to welcome Max’s precious violin as a preview at a special service commemorating the 77th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and Birkenau on Friday, January 21.

Please join us to hear from Auschwitz survivor Rosa Plawner and to hear the stirring melodies this precious violin still produces and feel the emotions it evokes.

Friday Night Live is sponsored by the Tisch family.

We are grateful for support of Violins of Hope programming from:

Robert B. Menschel and Richard Menschel
Betsy Cohn, in loving memory of Alan B. Cohn
The Rahm Family Fund
