Filmmaker Z.S. Rosenfeld and award-winning musician Elie Massias team up to create a unique, immersive experience in our historic main sanctuary to complement our “Lost Synagogues of Europe” exhibition. Against the backdrop of Rosenfeld’s film of decaying synagogues in Europe, Massias will improvise and perform a haunting, real-time soundtrack with guitar, voice, saxophone, keyboard and looping recorder. This continuing film and musical project was born out of a trip Rosenfeld made to Europe to photograph the deteriorating structures of former synagogues. It became his mission to memorialize these once flourishing spiritual communities, and celebrate the artisans who built, carved and painted an array of unique prayer houses across Europe. Join Rosenfeld and Massias for a Q&A following the program.
