You are invited to CBI’s annual commemoration of Yom HaShoah on Sunday, April 16, 2023, at 2 PM. There is NO charge, but registration is REQUIRED.
Our program’s guest speaker, RACHEL EPSTEIN, born 1932 in France, will share her riveting story about witnessing her parents’ death at the hands of the Nazis and how, like Anne Frank, she and her brother were saved by hiding with kind neighbors.
Following Rachel’s moving talk, The Dave Levitt Trio will perform a program of klezmer pieces, the traditional instrumental music of Eastern and Central European Ashkenazi Jews who were decimated by the Holocaust. Klezmer music, which has been revived and is popular again, embraces an inspiring musical style that has rebuilt Jewish culture. It has been said that Klezmer music rose from the ashes of the Holocaust to symbolize Jewish resilience.
All are welcome. Please invite your friends & family.
It’s going to be a memorable afternoon to help ensure we NEVER FORGET.
