Classrooms Without Borders, in partnership with Rodef Shalom Congregation, the Maltz Museum of Jewish History, the University of Pittsburgh Jewish Studies Program and the Department of History at Carnegie Mellon University, is thrilled to bring together renowned artists and scholars for a very special event honoring Primo Levi’s life and work through education and song.
Primo Levi scholar Professor Lina Insana will help contextualize the live performance of excerpts from Shema: Primo Levi from Poem to Song, a project that set Levi’s poetry to original music, by vocal artist Shulamit Ottolenghi with musicians and composers Shai Bachar and Frank London.
Primo Levi was an Italian Jewish chemist, writer, and Holocaust survivor. He was the author of several books, novels, collections of short stories, essays, and poems. Levi is considered by many as one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers.
