College Avenue Center: Movie 'Overture To Glory'

Lawrence Baron, retired professor of Religious Studies at SDSU, presents a classic film, “Overture to Glory”: “The cantor of a Vilna Synagogue, played by real life cantor, Moishe Oysher, leaves behind his prayers to perform in the Warsaw Opera. He struggles to balance the appeal of his new found fame and notoriety with feelings of guilt and responsibility towards his family and community.

The film, ‘Overture to Glory’ begins during the morning Rosh Hashanah service and ends at Kol Nidre, making this story a redemptive journey during the days of awe” (Source: National Center for Jewish Film).
