The Aleppo Codex, aka The Crown, is considered the most accurate and valuable edition of the Hebrew Bible. After being safeguarded for seven
centuries by the Syrian Sephardic community of Aleppo, more than a third of its pages disappeared when it was smuggled to Israel in 1957. As Avi Dabach, the filmmaker and great-grandson of the Crown Keeper navigates the dark corridors of hidden history, archival documents and rare testimonies reveal an astonishing story involving an Israeli president, Mossad agents, passionate rabbis,
and antique dealers.
T-Klez klezmer band returns to the JHMOMC, playing a Chanukah Holiday Concert! Enjoy standard tunes to sing along with, as well as melodies rarely heard, such as a 17th century Italian setting of Maoz Tzur, and a Dutch liturgical melody played on Shabbat Chanukah.
Join veteran musicians David Licht on percussion, Psachya Septimus on accordion, and Dobe (Dena) Ressler, on clarinet for this holiday afternoon treat.
