Liberation 75 Toronto, Canada
Tehorah, which means “pure” in Hebrew, is a heartbreaking, promising musical story about war, loss, hope, love and forgiveness. The soirée contains German, Yiddish and Hebrew songs that were composed and written exclusively by Jewish composers and lyricists; but at the same time Tehorah is a historical-poetic portrait. First performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, the concert now commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust and sends out a message of hope for peace among the nations.
Under the patronage of the German Consulate General in Toronto.
