Exclusive Dorot Outing: The Synagogue at Babyn Yar Exhibition Tour

Wednesday, November 8, 1:00 pm

On September 19, 1941, Babyn Yar — a ravine area outside of Kyiv, Ukraine — was the site of the first and worst single-day massacre of Jews during the Holocaust. Eighty years later, after years of Soviet suppression of this story, a synagogue has been erected by Swiss architect Manuel Herz on the same site, to memorialize the history and horror of the place and to create a sanctuary of hope for humankind. Now, Toronto’s Koffler Centre of the Arts is home to the world-premiere exhibition, The Synagogue at Babyn Yar: Turning the Nightmare of Evil into a Shared Dream of Good, which links three moments in time of exceptional global resonance – the original 1941 massacre, the creation and dedication of an extraordinary, jewel-like, wooden synagogue on the site, and the current Russian war against Ukraine. Holy Blossom’s beloved educator, Geri Durbin — who also serves as a docent at the Koffler Gallery — will give us a private tour of this fabulous, moving exhibition.
