Arts Emanu-El Special Concert Featuring Duo Mantar Performing "Rachel's Mandolin"


In the final program in the "Light in the Midst of Darkness" series, the virtuosi Adam Levin (classical guitar) and Jacob Reuven (mandolin) will perform a stirring rendition of "Rachel's Mandolin." The music honors the touching story of Rachela Zelmanowicz-Olewski, a Jewish mandolin player from Poland who, as a young woman, played in the Auschwitz women's orchestra. Rachel's dramatic life story of heroic survival at Auschwitz, liberation at Bergen-Belsen, and eventual settlement in Israel forms the backdrop for the music. Light refreshments will be served after the concert.
