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.
