Witness to the Holocaust: Learning from a Survivor

Ralph Franklin was born in 1928 in Schlochau, Germany. During Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938, Ralph's teacher told him to return home because he was prohibited from attending a public school. When he arrived home the Gestapo was arresting his father and uncle. They were sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
This educational program has been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

A Prayer for Love

We pray for protection; we pray for peace; we pray for tolerance; we pray for sanity; we pray for the day when cultural differences, sexual equality, and gun control are all accepted, because on that day we all will agree, as Lin-Manuel Miranda said at the Tony awards last week, "that love is love is love is love is love." (Excerpt from Cantor Frankel's prayer on Shabbat Click here to read all)

Stars of David: From Story to Song

Tuesday, June 28 at 6:30pm

Members of the American Conference of Cantors  will present “Stars of David: From Story to Song,” at Congregation Rodeph Shalom.This musical revue is based on the book by Abigail Pogrebin of interviews with well-known Jews. Each song in the concert is told from the point of view of one of those interviewed, such as Leonard Nimoy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Tony Kushner, Joan Rivers, and Norman Lear.

The theme of the ACC convention to be held here in Philadelphia June 26-30 is “D’ror Yikra, Let Freedom Sing.” In our convention programming we are exploring the freedom to look beyond the walls of the synagogue for inspiration and for a reminder of what is important to those who may not yet have entered our sacred spaces. Those interviewed for “Stars of David” are not necessarily synagogue affiliators, but their stories show us what is both so captivating and challenging about being Jewish. All of our experiences are affirmed when we hear the stories of others. Join us for this musical event!

Thank you for the support from the Miles Jellinek Memorial Fund. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased online
