Cohen and Prusak, 2001

•  Contribute to The Kaddish Project
Kaddish, written and composed by Lawrence Siegel, is an oratorio for chorus, soloists and chamber orchestra, about one hour in length, whose texts come verbatim from the testimony of survivors of the Holocaust. Kaddish tells their stories in their own words, providing a window into their lives, allowing us to share their experience directly.

Kaddish was commissioned by the Cohen Center for Holocaust Studies at Keene State College, Keene, NH, in honor of its 25th anniversary. In 2009 the Center became the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, offering a baccalaureate degree, with a curriculum combining historical study with an interdisciplinary exploration of both the Holocaust and other genocidal events.

Kaddish debuted at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College on May 3, 2008, with a world premiere following in Minneapolis, MN, on November 15th, 2008, given by VocalEssence, under Philip Brunelle. On November 23rd, 2010, a full orchestral version will be premiered by the Houston Symphony and Houston Symphony Chorus. In the period leading up to that performance, a series of significant workshops and presentations will feature the composer and Holocaust survivors. These activities will be produced by the Holocaust Museum Houston in partnership with the Houston Symphony. The same month, Kaddish will be performed on the campuses of the University of New Hampshire (November 14th, as part of Echoes of of the Holocaust) and Florida Atlantic University (November 6th, as part of the Lessons and Legacies of the Holocaust Conference). There are plans for future performances around the world, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, and Jerusalem, at Yad Vashem.

Your contribution will further the work of the Kaddish Project by helping to underwrite the cost of workshops and outreach in the effort to bring this work some are calling a choral masterpiece to audiences around the world, to use this work of art to raise awareness of the issue of genocide.

"I don't think people joined the project with the intention of building social capital; rather their interest was in the theater arts. But, in the end, it was clear that all members had experienced the benefits of social capital."

"In the fall 2003, we had the good fortune to have Larry Siegel lead our annual retreat. Larry provided a vehicle through which our management staff could express themselves in a way that none of them could have imagined.

Larry took us on a flight of artistic and creative fantasy that culminated in an hour-long performance that was both profound and highly entertaining. Larryís careful and gentle guidance brought our staff together and allowed many of them to express themselves in poetry and song for the first time. Larry is a truly gifted and talented gentleman who brings out the very best that our people have to offer. It will be a pleasure to work with him again in the future."
