Yom Ha Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day): Joe’s Violin
We wanted to share an important film on this day that is being offered by the JCCA for free. Please enjoy this and share this important story.
From the JCCA: “On Yom Ha Shoah, as we commemorate this day, and the millions that were lost, let us too remember those that survived and the power of sharing their stories. I am sharing a link below with you, along with an invitation to experience a beautiful short film. In 24 minutes, you will meet some extraordinary people, and hear how they are connected in a profound way.
In the Oscar®-nominated Joe’s Violin, a donated musical instrument forges an improbable friendship between 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Joe Feingold and 12-year-old Bronx schoolgirl Brianna Perez, proving that the power of music can bring light into the darkest of times, and that a small act can have a significant impact. Nominated, 2017 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject.”
