SAR High School Takes Its Choir on the Road

It has been a busy performance season for the SAR HS choir. The choir traveled to the New York Supreme Court building to perform at the annual Jewish Lawyers Guild Holocaust Remembrance Program. The keynote speaker was Menachem Rosensaft, Holocaust survivor and general counsel to the World Jewish Congress. The program was a moving and inspiring event in one of the most important halls of justice and liberty.

Then the choir participated in the annual Col. David “Mickey” Marcus Memorial in the Jewish chapel at West Point Military Academy. The memorial honors the heroism and bravery of Col. Mickey Marcus who lost his life serving as the first general of Israel’s army, as well as the other American soldiers who volunteered to fight in Israel’s War of Independence. Col. Marcus, perhaps best known for the film based on his life, starring Kirk Douglas, is the only soldier buried at West Point who was killed fighting under the flag of another country.
