Nachum Segal and the Nachum Segal Network team recently announced that it will be broadcasting its flagship JM in the AM program live from Paris, France and will present “Let There Be Light: The Concert of Jewish Unity” on the fourth night of Chanukah, December 9. Performers such as Yehoram Gaon, OHAD, Uziah Tzadok and others will be headlining the show.
The live broadcast will take place beginning at 2PM Eastern Time on December 9th. The concert will be held at the Synagogue de la Victoire (Grand Synagogue of Paris) at 2:30PM Eastern (8:30PM Paris).
December 9 was chosen to mark the week after the families of those murdered nearly on year ago end their daily recitation of the Mourner’s Kaddish. Not coincidentally, it is also the fourth night of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, when we celebrate the victory of the Hasmoneans over Antiochus IV Epiphanes and his Hellenized Assyrian army. Through the stubborn tenacity of the Hasmoneans, the Jewish people not only survived, but thrived and that same tenacity is still being shown by the majority of French and European Jews, today.
The “Let There Be Light: The Concert of Jewish Unity” is meant to celebrate the lives of those living in France, and to honor the Jewish communities. The Nachum Segal Network aims to commend the courage of Parisians, and to support those who stand proud and defiant.
“The Nachum Segal Network is dedicated to actively promoting the message of Jewish unity in France and throughout Europe,” said Nachum Segal, Founder of the network and host of JM in the AM. “European Jews, and now even more, Parisians, have been the subjects of countless attacks many times over the last few years. Our December 9 concert is going to help spread the message of solidarity and will help create, foster and sustain an atmosphere of community and strengthen the common bonds with the global Jewish community.”
Nachum Segal will be joined by Jewish community leaders from Europe, Israel and the United States.
