Jascha Heifetz Played Violin Like God’s Fiddler

Jascha Heifetz was a legendary but mysterious figure whose story embodies the paradox of how a mortal man lives with immortal gifts. “The Olympian quality of Heifetz’s playing,” wrote Thirteen WNET New York, “was unique in luminous transparency of texture, tonal perfection, and formal equilibrium of phrasing.”

God’s Fiddler is a the only film biography of the world’s most renowned violinist. The film opens in New York City at QUAD Cinema on October 28, but you can see it at a special screening at 92nd Street Y on September 18. The film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with director Peter Rosen, Ayke Agus, violinist, pianist and accompanist of Jascha Heifetz and John Anthony Maltese, the official biography writer of Heifetz. Tickets are available here.

Welcome To 92nd Street Y’s New Fall Season

Sol Adler, Executive Director, 92nd Street Y

Welcome to 92nd Street Y’s new fall season.

As always, this time of year generates excitement and anticipation. This fall, we are especially energized by 92nd Street Y’s new look, designed to take us into the future and communicate to people around the world what you already know: that 92Y is “An Open Door to Extraordinary Worlds.” Today, we also have wide open “virtual doors” so that people can experience 92Y wherever they are, whether it’s through our new website or our blog, on Facebook or Twitter, or on YouTube, iTunesU, or Amazon.

Our mission, of course, remains the same: to enrich lives, create community and elevate humanity, all through the lens of our Jewish values, such as learning and self-improvement, family, the joy of life and giving back to the community. To achieve that mission, we offer an extraordinary breadth and depth of programming in the arts, education, health and wellness, and Jewish life to people of all ages, faiths, races, backgrounds and perspectives.

As a member of this very special community of communities, I am humbled and inspired by the many remarkable personal and communal journeys I have witnessed here at 92Y:
