Arts & Culture

Renowned Sarasota Opera principal harpist Giuseppina Ciarla will perform Sunday, June 26, 5:00 p.m. at Temple Sinai in a special concert, “Hope from the Harp,” to benefit Ukrainian
refugees. Monies raised will support medical aid and relief efforts for Ukrainians by Emergency USA, a non-profit organization providing free medical care to victims of war and poverty. Giuseppina Ciarla will perform songs from her recently released critically acclaimed international album, “A Ticket Home.” The concert will feature Ciarla singing and playing the harp - a true rarity. Elie Rubinstein, Executive Director of Emergency USA, will speak about the organization he represents and how it is making a direct impact on the lives of Ukrainians in crisis. Emergency has launched Politruck, its largest mobile outpatient clinic. The mobile bus is in Moldova, a country that neighbors Ukraine’s southwest border. It is estimated that there are currently over 450,000 refugees in Moldova alone. Via the Politruck, the medical staff offers free, high-quality healthcare assistance to thousands of people, including women, children and the elderly. Temple Sinai’s Spiritual Leader Chazzan Cliff Abramson says this concert is an example of a value central to Judaism. The concert will be held at Temple Sinai, 4631 S. Lockwood Ridge Rd. (enter from Proctor Road) and on livestream. Admission will be by donation (suggested $36/adult or $18/student. All donations are tax deductible.
