Musical Journeys: Shtetl, Ghetto, Israel

The Holocaust Living History Workshop presents:

Musical Journeys: Shtetl, Ghetto, Israel

Our last fall event features San Diego singer and educator Elisheva Edelson. Edelson learned her first Yiddish songs from her father, a Holocaust survivor. Later on, she studied at “Der Yiddisher Shule” in Mexico where she became involved in Holocaust memorialization. Besides teaching and performing songs in Yiddish, Ladino, and Hebrew, Edelson will provide some background information on the significance of music to the modern Jewish experience. Local Holocaust survivors are invited to attend the event and to share memories of their life before the war.

Check out songs performed by Elisheva Edelson!

When: Tuesday Nov. 22, 2011, 5-7 pm
