Silent Tears and Thieves of Dreams

Music of the Shoah

May 29 2024, 7:30PM to 9:30PM in the Hendeles Chapel.
NOTE: This event has already occurred.

“Payadora’s Silent Tears: The Last Yiddish Tango” is an award winning concert program based on testimonies of women in Canada who survived the Holocaust.

Lenka Lichtenberg's “Thieves of Dreams: Songs of Theresienstadt's Secret Poetess” is a Juno Award-winning album based on poetry that Lenka’s grandmother had written while imprisoned at Theresienstadt concentration camp during the Holocaust.

After touring the world, these two award winning projects come together for this rare concert event with special guest Aviva Chernick. Come together for an evening of exquisite music, moving from the delights of falling in love to the horrors suffered at the hands of tyrants. Celebrate the survival and resilience of the women whose stories and poetry are the basis for these projects.

Beth Tzedec's facilities are accessible, with an entry ramp and an elevator. There are non-gendered washrooms on the second floor. If you require any accommodation, please call 416-781-3511 during our office hours Monday to Friday.
