VIOLINS OF HOPE
TUESDAY, AUGUST 15TH AT 7:00 PM
In partnership with the JCC Chicago we are proud to present Violins of Hope. The collection of 70 string instruments played by Jewish musicians before and during the Holocaust have been painstakingly restored and are now coming to our area for cultural exhibitions, performances, and community education with a message of hope, resistance, resilience, and unity. We also welcome Pastor Chris Edmonds, the son of WWII hero Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds, whose fearless bravery saved the lives of more than 200 Jewish American soldiers in a prisoner of war camp in Germany. Pastor Chris recently received Righteous Among the Nations on behalf of his father from the Nation of Israel and Yad Vashem, the World’s Holocaust Remembrance Authority.
