75th Anniversary Concert Commemorating "The Night of Broken Glass"
On Sunday, November 17 at 3 p.m., the Sister Rose Thering Fund, as part
of the University's Sixty Years of Building Bridges Program, will
present a musical program marking the closing ceremony of Kristallnacht
Week (observed November 9-17). Dr. Jason Tramm, assistant professor and
director of choral activities at Seton Hall University, will lead the
Seton Hall Chorus plus professional singers and musicians in a free
concert, open to the public, at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred
Heart, 89 Ridge Street, Newark, New Jersey. The concert will feature
pieces such as Leonard Bernstein’s "Chichester Psalms" and "To Remember
It All," written by the Cracow émigré and composer Eddie Halpern.
Kristallnacht Week commemorates the 75th anniversary of "The Night
of Broken Glass," when on November 9-10,1938, violent anti-Jewish
protests broke out across the German Reich. The program is a
collaboration of several organizations including Building Bridges: Sixty
Years of Jewish-Christian Dialogue, The New Jersey Commission on
Holocaust Education and The Sister Rose Thering Fund for Education in
Jewish-Christian Studies at Seton Hall.
