The next Movie Matinee at Beit Knesset Hanassi is “Orchestra of Exiles”. It is a riveting, remarkable movie! The film tells the incredible and inspiring but little-known story of the creation of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra against impossible odds.
Bronislaw Huberman formed the Orchestra with refugees from Hitler. Using Mr. Huberman’s writings and other historical records, the movie relates this magnificent story through reenactments, narrative and interviews with family members of the original musicians and with other persons including Itzhak Perlman.
Mr. Huberman not “only” created the orchestra, he saved nearly 1,000 Jews.
Please come and learn how our wonderful Symphony Orchestra was created!
The Movie Matinee is on June 20 at 2:00. The film is 1½ hours. In addition, there will be a brief introduction of the film, a short talk and discussion after the screening and a handout about the movie.
There will be refreshments. No reservations are required. Beit Knesset Hanassi is located at 24 Ussishkin Street.
The cost is 20 shekels for members of Beit Knesset Hanassi and 30 shekels for non-members.
