Birchas Kohanim - Motty Ilowitz - Neranena Choir

An innovative, multi-sensory and exciting production for Passover from a rare story that took place on the morning of the first Yom Tov of Passover in the Bergen-Belsen death camp.

During one of the most moving moments of the journey, the guests visited the remains of the Mir Yeshiva in Shanghai, which was established in the terrible Holocaust, followed by an impressive production - an artistic program and a musical about the Holocaust and rebirth and the story of the Mir Yeshiva of Shanghai during the Holocaust.

On stage in Shanghai, singer and song-writer Motty Ilowitz from the United States, the Narnana Choir with the orchestra of the maestro Yehuda Galili accompanied by the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, performed. At the center of the performance was an ingenious musical presentation about a heroic story during the Holocaust of a Jew who devoted his life to sanctifying God in the secret night of the Seder, which led to the last blessing of Kohanim on the gallows.

For the first time in history, the viewers of the event will receive a new artistic 'painting in the sand' that describes the story in a special visual form by the artist and painter Aharon Ze'ev Bernstein.
