Two Faiths: One Spirit

14 Mar 2018


Each year CityMusic Cleveland hosts a special FREE concert series focused on themes of humanism and social justice.

This year's program Two Faiths: One Spirit highlights the common humanity that lies at the heart of all major faiths.

Two Faiths: One Spirit captures the essence of two parallel stories:
A richly illuminated Jewish holy book from 14th century Spain known as the Sarajevo Haggadah is saved from the Nazis during WWII by a Muslim imam who recognizes its historical, cultural and spiritual value and hides it under the mosque floor allowing it to be preserved to this day.

A group of courageous librarians risk their lives to save manuscripts and literary treasures housed in Timbuktu from destruction by violent extremists with the help of Harvard Professor, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, a Christian from West Virginia whose African roots lead him to help save the rich historical legacy of his ancestral land.

These two parallel stories of religiously significant documents saved with the help of people of different beliefs shows the indomitable nature of the human spirit and our instinct to work together preserve what is beautiful and good in the world.
