JMB to 120! Generations and Visions

Talk and Concert as Part of Our Cultural Summer (video recording available, in German and partly in English)

We have achieved, experienced and shaped many things in our first twenty years — and are planning much more in the future! Together with old and new friends, we’ll use the conclusion of our Cultural Summer to fix our gazes on the road ahead: how can the cultural heritage be preserved and transmitted for future generations? What new forms of interaction with history are opening up to us in the present? What meaning do Enlightenment values have today? And how can we face up to the challenges of shared responsibility for our world?

8.15 pm: Concert Sounds of Generations

An evening of Jewish music in all its diversity: in honor of the anniversary, mandolin player Alon Sariel and pianist Gad Kadosh called for a sweeping summit of Jewish music culture. Classic and klezmer, Ladino and popular music from Matti Caspi and Yoni Rechter — this music shaped entire generations. To cap off the Cultural Summer, we’ll share together in the wonders of an outdoor musical celebration featuring mandolin and piano.
