The music of European Reform synagogues in the years leading up to the Holocaust will be highlighted during the Violins of Hope Shabbat service on Friday, November 15 at 7 p.m. at the Temple.
The service will be led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig and Cantor Yvon F. Shore with the Temple’s Hazemir Choir. A quartet of musicians will be playing the Violins of Hope as well. Cantor Shore is Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati.
Together we will observe a memorial to Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, which unleashed the public state-supported attacks against the Jews which culminated in the murder of six million souls during the Holocaust.
Thank you to the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation for its support.
Thank you to Maureen Grinsfelder and Micki Kepes for chairing the Oneg Shabbat.
Violins of Hope is a community-wide series of events November 9-24 organized by the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic.
