Yiddish songs at Holocaust Remembrance Day
Eliana Pliskin Jacobs, Yiddish singer and performer, will sing several Yiddish songs as part of the City of Berkeley’s 20th Annual Holocaust Remembrance Day Virtual Program.
The featured survivor, Dr. Miriam Tasini, has a remarkable story to tell of her odyssey of more than 20,000 miles to safety from the Nazi’s. Additional speakers will include Hannah Weisman, the new director of the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, and Corinna Gould, tribal spokesperson for the Confederated Villages of Lisjan.
A unique candle lighting ceremony by survivors and their family members will grace the program throughout as will music by Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, operatic countertenor, by Eliana Pliskin Jacobs, Yiddish singer and performer, and by violin accompanist Samuel Seifert.
This City of Berkeley program was developed in partnership with JFCS East Bay and JCC East Bay. All are welcome to attend. No charge, but registration is required.
