Jewish Life, Faith and Culture – Theme Evening at “Leipziger Hörspielsommer” Radio Play Festival

Im Zentrum eines Themenabends mit Hörspielen, Interviews und Musik steht das deutsch-jüdische Miteinander in Leipzig seit der Zeit, als Juden in Deutschland schrittweise die gleichen Bürgerrechte wie Nichtjuden erhielten. Die Hörspiele ranken sich um Synagogen als Orte, die Menschen Heimat und Halt geben können, um wiederkehrende Fluchterfahrungen jüdischer Menschen, um den Reichtum der jüdischen Kultur am Beispiel der Musik und um das Ringen der jüdischen Gemeinde, ihren Weg in Deutschland zwischen liberalen und orthodoxen Glaubens- und Lebenserfahrungen neu zu finden. Große Persönlichkeiten – Brückenbauer zwischen den Kulturen trotz Diskriminierung sowie Zeiten eines wechselseitig bereichernden Austausches – bieten Anknüpfungspunkte für ein neues Miteinander von Juden und Nichtjuden in Deutschland.

A theme evening with radio plays, interviews and music focuses on German-Jewish coexistence in Leipzig since the time when Jews in Germany gradually received the same civil rights as non-Jews. The radio plays are about synagogues as places that can give people a home and a foothold, about recurring experiences of flight by Jewish people, about the richness of Jewish culture as exemplified by music, and about the struggle of the Jewish community to find its way anew in Germany between liberal and orthodox experiences of faith and life. Great personalities – bridge builders between cultures despite discrimination – as well as times of mutually enriching exchange offer starting points for a new coexistence of Jews and non-Jews in Germany.

Date: July 8, 2021, 6 p.m.-2 p.m.

Place: Richard-Wagner-Hain (east side)

Promenade Concert on a Bicycle – Notenrad Tour to Jewish Cemeteries

In the jubilee year "1700 years of Jewish life in Germany", the Notenspur Association dedicates its Notenrad (Music Bike Trail) tour to the Jewish cemetery and remembrance culture. The ride leads via the Old and New Jewish Cemeteries in Leipzig to the Jewish Cemetery in Delitzsch. Gravesites of people who were important for the history of music will be visited, cemetery customs will be explained and music will be heard. On the way there is time for a picnic (church Podelwitz/Rackwitz, self-catering!). From Delitzsch, the tour, which is 50 km long in total, leads back to Leipzig via Lake Werbellin and Lake Schladitz (arrival approx. 7:00 p.m.). The tour will be accompanied by the ADFC Leipzig.

Participation in a guided tour and the musical performance is also possible by public transport.

Further information with the expected times will follow.

Together with the Jewish community, we ask male participants to cover their heads with appropriate headgear in the Jewish cemeteries.
