Join us for a special Friday night prayer service.
The exquisite sounds of numerous violins will echo throughout our Main Sanctuary, their power brought back to life by the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in memory of the Holocaust refugees and survivors who saved the precious instruments during their darkest hours.
Join us and be moved by the extraordinary melodies that still resonate from a violin played by an inmate member of the Auschwitz Orchestra; another by one of the last Jews to escape Nazi Europe; an instrument that a young Italian Jew clung to in a forced labor camp; Klezmer violins emblazoned with Stars of David.
