Kol Nashim Women’s Choir to Perform to Benefit Battered Women May 21st

Kol Nashim (KN), the women’s choir of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale will present a performance of “Woman to Woman”, their annual concert benefiting the Jerusalem Shelter for Battered Women.  The performance will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017, 3:00 pm at Congregation Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale Rd.

Since its inception in fall 2013, Music Director and Founder, Leah Peer, envisioned KN, the women’s choir of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, as a community of women, making music in support of the larger community of women.

KN has performed benefit concerts at Congregations Rodef Shalom, B’nai Chaim, Morrison, Congregation Beit Evergreen, HEA, and Temple Sinai, raising a total of $7,000 for the Shelter. In 2015, an anonymous donor stepped forward, matching the funds raised, increasing the total amount to $12,600.

The Jerusalem Shelter for Battered Women offers refuge and support to women from all walks of Israeli life without discrimination. Residents include Jews, Christians and Muslims, Arab and Ethiopian women and children. Typically, the women who arrive there are those who have no other support network. Unique to Shelter, and funded solely by donations, is their children’s program. The Shelter’s residents are typically not from Jerusalem to make it more difficult for their abusers to find them. The children who arrive receive individual assistance with adjusting to a new school, tutoring and counseling. There is also an in-house nursery school for infants and toddlers.

Sponsors of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale concerts benefitting the victims of domestic violence locally and abroad include the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), JEWISHcolorado, Puffin Foundation, West, and all of the synagogues mentioned.

America and the Holocaust: A Filmmaker’s Perspective

As the producer and director of a PBS film on America’s response to the Holocaust some years ago, I was at first delighted to learn that Ken Burns has now likewise made a film for broadcast on PBS about how our country responded to the Nazi genocide. But some advance publicity for the broadcast raises questions as to whether his film will accurately portray key issues such as U.S. refugee policy and the failure to bomb Auschwitz.
