Heritage Shabbat: Kristallnacht

Friday, November 9, 2018 1 Kislev 5779

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us for our first Heritage Shabbat of the new year. We will come together as a community to remember the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, also known as The Night of Broken Glass.

Through moving music and words, we will commemorate the night that foreshadowed the atrocities of the Holocaust. This selection will include the piece "Even When God is Silent" written by our very own Michael Horvit, commissioned on the 50th anniversary of Kristallnacht in 1988 from words scrawled on a wall in Germany at the end of World War II. The music will include our choirs and organ alongside Cantor Simmons and will feature melodic treasures that have been beloved by generations of worshipers at Emanu El.
