Join us on Monday April 28 at 7pm at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury at 105 Hudson Road.
To remember and honor those lost in the Holocaust, Congregation Beth El, Bnai Torah and Or Atid will co-host a service followed by a stage reading of the play, “The Last Cyclist” based on a cabaret written by Karel Svenk in 1994. The play was rehearsed, but never performed, as the writer and actors feared retaliation, as the play mocks the Nazis. The play is funny and is meant to be funny. A coping mechanism of sorts for those in Terezin, who were living in terrible conditions. This play gives us insight into the resilience of the Jews imprisoned in the Terezin Ghetto, a “waiting station” on the way to concentration camps such as Auschwitz. In Terezin, artists performed concerts and plays, created art — in spite of the horrific conditions. The program is open to all in the community. There will be a short service to begin, followed by the stage reading.
