Musical Tribute at Denver Art Museum – Thursday

Denver, CO:  It has been one year since the brutal killing of Chabad emissaries Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg – together with their guests – by Islamic terrorists at Nariman House in Mumbai, India. To mark the first anniversary of this tragic event locally, 14 Chabad Centers are co-sponsoring a community wide musical tribute to the victims of the Mumbai Chabad House. The “Lamp Lighters” concert is Thursday, November 19th, at the Denver Art Museum. The guest performer is singer – song writer Moshe Hecht. Hecht’s music is an eclectic blend of folk, reggae and spiritual tales that is inspiring audiences around the world.

“The Holtzbergs were the ultimate servants of the Jewish community –they were veritable lamplighters, even as they kindled the spark of Jewish pride in all who came in contact with them. Tragically they had to make the ultimate sacrifice for the Jewish people. This concert entitled “Lamp Lighters” affords the community the opportunity to celebrate the dedication and sacrifice of these two remarkable Jewish leaders. We invite all members of the Jewish community to join us in celebrating the lives of these two shining stars.” — Rabbi Yisroel Engel of Chabad of Colorado.

Doors will open at 7:15 pm. Admission is $15, students and youths $10.  Included in the price of the concert is a tour of THE CELL (The Center for Empowered Living & Learning) located next to the Denver Art Museum. THE CELL’s exhibit: Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: Understanding the Threat of Terrorism, is experiential and interactive utilizing state-of-the-art multimedia tools to educate its visitors.  It is the only exhibit of its kind in the world.  For more information please call the ticket office at 303.792.7222 or visit us online at

Legacy: The Yellow Violin

“Sam, you asked me a question I never thought about before. What if my grandfather was able to bring the violin to Israel? Would this music have this new life, this revival of spirit? Perhaps what seemed like such an injustice back then was a part of the master plan. Maybe the time wasn’t right. This violin, this music was, like Moses I suppose, never intended to enter the land of Israel.”
