Violins of Hope



Violins of Hope will be hosted by JCC Chicago and other partner organizations. The collection of string instruments played by Jewish musicians before and during the Holocaust have been painstakingly restored and are now coming to our area for cultural exhibitions, performances, and community education with a message of hope, resistance, resilience, and unity.

Some of this invaluable collection will be coming to the Library in April 2023. Please watch for more about the community performances and education soon.
