Charlene Brooks, daughter of two Holocaust Survivors, brings us her card-playing "aunts and uncles", Meyer the butcher, Sam the shoe-maker, and Mom, the funniest woman you'll ever meet. Her “family” of Survivors inspired this deeply moving and incredibly funny performance.


This performance will be sign language interpreted.


This concert benefits Congregation Bene Shalom, located at 4435 W. Oakton Street, Skokie. The mission of this unique synagogue is to serve deaf and hearing Jews and non Jews, using voice and sign language. Led by Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer and assisted by Assistant Rabbi Shari Chen, along with Student Rabbis Charlene Brooks and Sari Daybook, the Temple holds religious services on Friday evenings and Kabbalistic Meditation Services on Saturday mornings. The synagogue also hosts a food pantry that serves people of all nationalities in need in Skokie, and a special luncheon for deaf Senior Citizens of all religions each month.



Please join us at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center for this very special and unique performance.
