|Video and Audio Recordings of Jewish Music From Three Continents|
If you would like to re-experience the wonderful concert, Jewish Music From Three Continents, that we presented last month — or even more so if you missed the concert — we hope you enjoy the video below. This portion of the concert is Ernest Bloch's Baal Shem: Three Pictures of Hassidic Life.
Also below is a link to purchase a CD of the beautiful studio recording Sergey Khanukaev and Daniel Broniatowski made of Jewish Music From Three Continents, a CD completed and released just days before the concert.
|Finding Childhood Next Sunday|
Evelyne Albrecht Schwaber, a renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, was four years old when she fled Vienna with her parents in 1938, six months after the Anschluss. Two years later, after a temporary sojourn in Switzerland, she and her parents came to the United States.
Next Sunday, April 27 (28 Nissan 5774), Dr. Schwaber will be the Guest Speaker at the annual Community-Wide Yom Ha-Shoah Commemoration, which is co-sposonsored by the Adams Street Shul. The title of her presentation is “Finding My Childhood – Again: Fleeing the Shoah.”
The program will also include a video feature and a presentation by Maimonides students. “Yom Hashoah is a day of remembrance,” Dr. Schwaber says. “My story tells of the nature and power of memories lost and recovered.”
This year's commemoration will be held at the S. Joseph Solomont Synagogue, at the Maimonides School (34 Philbrick Rd., Brookline). The commemoration begins at 8:00 PM, preceded by mincha at 7:30 PM.

|Next Sunday Come and Walk!|
The Adams Street Team is currently nearing the top of the fund-raisers ranking. You can put us on top!
Join your friends, and make new ones, as members of the Adams Street Shul participate in the Second Annual Walk for Rofeh, next Sunday, April 27, at the DCR Chestnut Hill Reservoir. This event is a 5 km (3.1 mile) family-friendly walk to support Rofeh International.
Rofeh is a great cause! People from all around the world and throughout the United States come to Boston’s prestigious medical centers for life saving medical treatment. These patients and their families are stuck far from home, perhaps for a long time, and are feeling vulnerable in a stressful and unfamiliar environment.
Rofeh ensures that the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of patients and their families are met with loving kindness, warmth and dignity. The Rofeh support system includes medical referrals, food, housing, and social services — all at no charge to those stressed with illness and financial pressures.
Rofeh was founded by the previous Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Horowitz; and is now directed by his youngest son, the current Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Naftali Yehuda Horowitz.
Now that Purim is over, please consider signing up for the walk. Help raise money for this great charity that is doing important work right here in Boston.
And you get a really cool Rofeh T-shirt, and a Team Adams Street cap!

|Yom HaZikaron & Eighth Annual Family Picnic with the Trees|
There is a berachah that we can say only once a year, when we see two (or more) different species of fruit-bearing trees in bloom simultaneously. Each year, we come together to say it. This year, we will gather for our Eighth Annual Family Picnic With the Trees on Sunday May 4th, from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
May 4th is also Yom HaZikaron, so this year our guest speakers will connect trees to Yom HaZikaron. Rabbi Norbert Weinberg, Rabbi Avinoam Durani, and other area rabbis have graciously consented to address us.
