Violins of Hope docent training

Posted on: January 31st, 2018 by tgregory

Community members met last month with Violins of Hope restoration artisan Avshi Weinstein to learn about his craft and how they can participate as volunteer docents during the Violins of Hope programs this spring. In their workshop in Israel, Weinstein and his father, Amnon Weinstein, restore violins and other instruments that Jews played during the Holocaust. He brought some of the instruments to Nashville for volunteers to see in person. The Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee is one of the major sponsors of the Violins of Hope.
