Sephardic poetry has traditionally been filled with a love and longing
for Zion and Jerusalem, and the concert melodies will attempt to give
voice to that powerful yearning. The event will take place this SUNDAY,
APRIL 25th, at the CENTER FOR JEWISH HISTORY, and will start with a
reception (including docent-led tours of our current exhibit, JEWISH
COSTUMES IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE) at 7 PM. The evening’s program will
begin at 7:45 by first honoring those who gave their lives in Israel’s
defense with a presentation by Rabbi Dr. Elie Abadie, and then
transitioning into a celebration of Israel’s independence with Middle
Eastern and Sephardic song!
Please join us in what we are sure will be an exciting and meaningful
evening! We can’t wait to see you there!
