The Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women will host a screening of “Orchestra of Exiles” on Monday, May 8, at 2 p.m., at Temple Emeth in Teaneck. The film tells the story of Bronislaw Huberman, the Polish violinist who founded the orchestra that would become the Israel Philharmonic. In creating the orchestra, Huberman arranged for the best Jewish musicians to emigrate from Nazi-threatened territories. He saved more than 1,000 Jews from almost certain death in the Holocaust.
The following Tuesday, May 16, the film’s director, documentary filmmaker Josh Aronson, will discuss “Orchestra of Exiles” at a second NCJW BCS meeting, this one at 12:30 p.m., also at Temple Emeth. The synagogue is at 1666 Windsor Road in Teaneck. For more information, go to www.ncjwbcs.org.
