Join us for our second Soul Sounds concert. Hankus Netsky and Hebrew College Rosh Tefillah & Artist-in-Residence Rabbi Jessica Kate Meyer share spiritual Jewish melodies passed down to them by Morris Hollender z”l, the sole survivor of his musical village. A survivor of Auschwitz concentration camp, Morris Hollender came to the Boston area from Czechoslovakia in 1967. A child from a renowned musical family in the Munkacs/Beregsacz region, he learned nusach and melodies from his Uncle Shloyme, Yiddish folk songs from his mother and extended family, and nigunim from his father and his Uncle Berl.

Hollender’s role as Ba’al Tefile and Ba’al Koreh at Temple Beth Israel in Waltham became the cornerstone of his musical legacy in the United States and across the world. His repertoire is a rare gift among contemporary musicians, contributing to the international resurgence of Eastern European Jewish musical culture.

6:30 p.m. Doors open. Light refreshments available.

7 p.m. Concert begins

Event organizational partners: Jewish Arts Collaborative (JArts), Base Boston, and Temple Beth Israel in Waltham.
