Hankus Netsky and members of New England Conservatory’s Jewish Music Ensemble will be featured in Temple Beth Israel of Waltham’s annual Morris and Edith Hollender Memorial Tish.
It honors the memory of the late Morris Hollender, Temple Beth Israel’s long-time baal-tefile (lay religious leader) and Torah reader who died in 2015, and of his wife, Edith Hollender, who died in 2020.
Auschwitz concentration camp survivors, the Hollenders came to the Boston area from Czechoslovakia in 1967. Temple Beth Israel honors the Hollenders each year by hosting a “tish”—a community sing around a table—in their memory.
At this year’s event, Dr. Hankus Netsky, a Temple Beth Israel member, leader of the Klezmer Conservatory Band and co-chair of New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation Department, will be joined by members of NEC’s Jewish Music Ensemble and congregation members who will help him lead the singing of traditional Eastern European Jewish melodies that Hollender remembered from his childhood and shared generously with others during his time in the U.S.
The event will take place on Zoom (limited space available; preregistration required) and will be streamed to the synagogue’s Facebook page. A website dedicated to Morris Hollender’s musical and cultural legacy is available at morrishollender.tbiwaltham.org.+ More... - Less...
