Moshe Kahan presents a dramatization of the “lost and found” masterpiece of Zvi Kolitz, Yosl Rakover Talks to God.
“I, Yosl, son of David Rakover of Tarnopol, a chassid of the Gerrer Rebbe, am writing these lines as the houses of the Warsaw Ghetto are in flames…”
Thus begins the profound and thought provoking testament of Yosl Rakover written in the last hours of the fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto, April 28, 1943.
Yosl Rakover Talks to God is a 30 minute dramatic production which is followed by participatory discussion that can be adapted to the needs of your Jewish/Holocaust Studies program objectives in the coming year.
Partial list of subjects touched upon in Yosl Rakover Talks to God:
The Last Days of the Warsaw Ghetto and the Uprising
Hester Panim (When God is Silent)
The Suffering of Innocents
