Short film screening: A Jew Walks Into a Bar by Jonathan Miller

Cantor Mendelson is suddenly let go by the Temple where he has served for 28 years. As he prepares for his final Yom Kippur services, he ponders the decline of traditional Jewish sacred music amidst growing preferences for younger cantors with more modern and engaging liturgical styles. Interviews with Mendelson and his proteges explore the magic of this centuries-old art form and what its loss represents.

Special Event Date/Time: Monday, January 25; 7pm
Cantor Jack Mendelson in conversation with Rabbinic Fellow Jason Cook.

In partnership with Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati – Guardians and Friends.
