presented in partnership with Interplay Jewish Theatre, the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage and the Jewish Community Center.

Hosted by the Mandel JCC 26001 South Woodland Rd., Beachwood, OH
Deb Filler shares the role of music in her family’s life as they emerged from Nazi-occupied Europe to settle in New Zealand. Among her stories: her father’s life-changing encounter with Leonard Bernstein, who came to his DP camp in Landsberg, Germany in 1948, to conduct the Displaced Persons Orchestra. Deb shares her award-winning film documentary, Mr. Bernstein, which has played in Jewish film festivals around the world. In it, she revisits her father’s transformation – and much later, her own, when she successfully tracks down the Maestro. In her life-affirming “I Did It My Way,” Filler pays homage to musicians who influenced her life.
