Elie Wiesel once told this reporter that he lives in his memories. In his many books, the Nobel laureate has vividly recaptured the atmosphere of his childhood in Sighet, Romania, and his experiences during the Shoah and afterwards in France, Israel and New York.
This Saturday night, for the first time, fans of the writer will get to hear the soundtrack to those memories in a program titled “Elie Wiesel in Concert: Melodies and Stories from Long Ago.” (Dec. 18, 7:30 p.m., 92nd Street Y. See www.92y.org for tickets.)
Young Families, Singles Flocking to Upper East Side; ‘The Memory Is In Their Taste Buds’: The Lure of Sephardic Food; Safra Synagogue Rabbi’s Growing Empire; Sephardic And Egalitarian at B’nai Jeshurun; Giving Voice to Sephardic Music.
