Judith Elkan Memorial Concert

at New North London Synagogue
80 East End Road N3 2SY

from 3.00-4.15pm on Sunday 19th June 
(followed by refreshments)

You are warmly invited to a concert in memory of Judith Elkan.

The concert will be a time to get together and remember Judith. In conceiving this concert, we wanted the programme to reflect the many facets of Judith’s life, including her love of classical music and her strong attachment to her cultural roots (she was born in Jerusalem to a Syrian family and spoke fluent Arabic and Hebrew). It will include music by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Hoffman and Orlando Gough as well as Israeli and Arabic music. We think Judith would have loved the programme we have put together.

Judith felt strongly that the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians could only be solved through dialogue and a process which involves empathy and seeing the human face of ‘the other’. She dedicated the last 18 years of her life to promoting the work of reconciliation carried out by Palestinian and Israeli families bereaved by the on-going fighting. She founded the UK Friends of the Israeli Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum (FBFF) and served as its Chair till her death in February, aged 92.

Tickets for the concert are free. But as the organisers aim to promote awareness and raise funds for the Bereaved Families Forum, donations are welcome. You can donate online here.

Ayala Gottlieb Alter (mezzo-soprano)

Wissam Boustany (flute)
