Facing Absence
For many years Holocaust (Shoa) commemoration focused on the horrible loss and its cruel details. The laws, the markings, the segregation, deportation and murder. Our songs and stories tried hopelessly to capture the pain and the indescribable suffering. We should never let them be erased and forgotten. Yet it is time for us to try and capture the memory of their lives and make them our memories. We need to understand that they did not just disappear – they left us a legacy of how of how to walk in their footsteps. Visiting the places they lived in even when all we have is a wall, an empty lot or a synagogue turned into community center – should become part of our journey.

This is an invitation to join my journey to rural Hungary in the wine land of Tokai:
We will explore the renewal of Jewish life in the beautifully renovated synagogue of Mad. We will imagine back Jewish family life as we face the empty lot where the Mikve (ritual bath) stood. We will listen to music still sung in those parts and remember the rabbis who composed it. The main centers of Jewish life nowadays are in North America and in Israel yet our memories linger on in Europe, in the land our forefathers and mothers called home. These too we are commended to remember. This program is presented in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, Jewish Family Service, and the Mayerson JCC.
