2019-20 Season

A Night of Comedy with Ophira Eisenberg


Ophira Eisbenberg is a Canadian-born stand-up comedian and writer. She hosts NPR’s nationally syndicated comedy trivia show Ask Me Another (airing on 400+ stations) where she interviews, jokes and plays silly games with celebrity guests.

When not immersed in trivia, she can be seen headlining across the United States, Canada and Europe with her unique seamless blend of stand-up and storytelling to her loyal fan base of smart, irreverent comedy lovers. She has appeared on Comedy Central, "This Week At The Comedy Cellar," Kevin Hart’s "LOL Network," HBO’s "Girls," "Gotham Live," "The Late Late Show," "The Today Show" and VH-1.

Eisenberg is a regular host and teller with The Moth and her stories have been featured on The Moth Radio Hour and in two of The Moth’s best-selling books. Her first book, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy is a comedic memoir about her experiments in the field as a single woman, traveling from futon to futon and flask-to-flask, gathering data, hoping to put it all together and build her own perfect Frankenmate. It was optioned for a feature film.

Violins of Hope Chamber Music Concert


Amnon Weinstein has spent the last two decades locating and restoring violins that were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust.

He dedicates this important work to 400 relatives he never knew. These grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins stayed behind in Eastern Europe when Amnon’s parents, Moshe and Golda, immigrated in 1938 to Palestine, where Moshe opened a violin shop. After the war, Moshe learned that his entire family – 400 in all – had been murdered during the Holocaust.

After growing up to become one of the most respected violin makers in the world, Amnon became determined to reclaim his lost heritage. He started locating violins that were played by Jews in the camps and ghettos, painstakingly piecing them back together so they could be brought to life again on the concert stage. Although most of the musicians who originally played the instruments were silenced by the Holocaust, their voices and spirits live on through the violins that Amnon has lovingly restored.

He calls these instruments the Violins of Hope.
