From Jaclyn Leeds, Executive Director & S2
Aurora’s Outreach Ensemble had the honor of performing this past weekend at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education. In our 45-min performance entitled Never Say, we presented a program reflective of Jewish spiritual heritage and historical perspective. This performance complemented the current exhibition The Last Journey of the Jews of Lodz, in partnership with Portland Art Museum’s Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross. The exhibition ends Feb. 24.
You can see additional songs on Aurora’s YouTube channel, thanks to the wonderful recording of singer and A1-M Kristin Jacobson. “Blessing” below is Joan Szymko’s setting of a quote by Rabbi A. Heschel.
