Crossing-Over-300x225

Music by Michael Allen Harrison. Alan Berg’s Book & Lyrics. Narrated by Rabbi Emanuel Rose with Soloists Julianne R. Johnson; Cantor Ida Rae Cahana and Kirk Mouser. Crossing Over also features young artists, Ashley and Cayla Bleoajas; a children’s choir; members of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony and art by Leonard Baskin.

Crossing Over is a unique and inspiring presentation of an ancient story of freedom for the slave, fighting for human rights and religious freedom. Telling this story is another way OAJC carries out its mission. As we share the story of Exodus with the community in such a moving and meaningful way, we hope to build understanding between all people no matter what their beliefs.

Program repeats April 6th at 2:00 PM. Tickets: Adults $36-$72; Youth/Student $15; Groups (10+) $25, available through PSU Box Office.
