Awarded the Trondheim Municipality’s Culture Prize for 2020!!!

Festival 2021

A number of prominent artists and musicians from whole Norway, as well as from the Trøndelag will join together in elevating the Jewish Culture Festival 2021 to new heights.

September the 4th, violinist Arve Tellefsen will be standing on the podium of the Trondheim synagogue to play the violin of the famous pre-war “Palmehaven” conductor – the late Jac Maliniak.

Composer and musician Henning Sommerro, will present his new work with an orchestra of eight musicians on stage. They will perform a piece of the commissioned work – “People of the book”. This project should have been performed in connection with the festival’s tenth year anniversary last year. But then, there were such strict infection control measures that we arranged only a mini festival.

It is still rather strict this year as well, but now, we are aiming at filling at least half the hall during festival’s concerts, talks and lectures.

It is a great honor for us to have the Trondheim born and Norway´s famous musician – Arve Tellefsen – who will be visiting with us to play pieces on Jac Maliniak´s violin. Jac Maliniak was a great musician how were deported and then killed in Auschwitz in 1943 together with his wife. His daughter and then grandchildren have taken great care of his violin.

There will be two performances with the festival’s playful family performance at Trøndelag Theater, entitled «Creation and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden», so most people can guess the content of the play.

We are also looking forward to two exciting klezmer concerts, the first with our old acquaintances from Urban Tunnéll’s klezmer band, which itself has its 20th anniversary this year. The second concert with Samech, a band consisting of Polish and Norwegian musicians, which delivers world music with a core of klezmer.

There will be something for both the head and the heart, including a conversation between dean Ragnhild Jepsen and rabbi Lynn Feinberg about women in the Old Testament. The conversation will be taking place in the Synagogue and will introduce the opening of an exhibition with the same theme at Trondheim’s art association straight after.

Sunday starts with author and filmmaker Nina Grünfeld talking to author Berit Reisel and researcher Synne Corell about perspectives on the Norwegian compensation settlement to the Jews after World War II. The talks will then continue with a panel discussion led by editor Snorre Valen with the title “Who will tell the story when the last survivor is dead?” There among others, we shall meet Labor Party politician – Hanne Moe Bjørnbet and the authors Mattis Øybø and Roar Ræstad, who have both published books this year with themes from World War II.
