It is with particular pleasure that I share with you some remarkable news.
Our Cantor Maissner has been awarded one of Germany’s highest civilian honours: The Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany – “Der Verdienstorden der Bundesrepublik Deutschland”.
This singular honour recognizes Beny’s enormous contribution in “restoring and preserving the great Jewish musical heritage for Germany and for the world.”
The award will be presented by the German Consul General, Walter Stechel, on Sunday, November 23rd, at 12:00 noon, immediately following our Annual General Meeting. Please join us for this event and celebration.
