A Message from Apollo’s Fire and Rabbi Jonathan Cohen, Senior Rabbi of The Temple-Tifereth Israel

Dear Apollo’s Fire Patrons,
Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, The Temple-Tifereth Israel is closed for public gatherings at this time. Tonight’s performance of “O Jerusalem!” (Tuesday, March 10) will be RELOCATED to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 2747 Fairmount Blvd, Cleveland Heights, 44106. The concert will still take place at 7:30pm. The pre-concert talk has been cancelled. 

Rabbi Jonathan Cohen of The Temple-Tifereth Israel would like to convey the following message to our patrons:

Friends, it is with deep regret and concern for the health and safety of our community that we must close our Temple to this evening’s O Jerusalem performance. We are deeply grateful to Apollo’s Fire for its extraordinary “O Jerusalem!” program, sustaining the flame of faith. We send our blessings of health, goodness, and inspiration to all those who will experience the glory of ”O Jerusalem!” this evening. 
We are grateful to St Paul’s Church for making their building available to us on short notice.
A limited number of tickets are available at the door, both tonight (Tuesday) at St Paul’s and tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Cleveland Museum of Art.  
If you already have tickets to tonight’s concert, we are offering several options for your convenience:
1. ATTEND the performance tonight at St. Paul’s Church. We will re-seat you in the closest equivalent to the seat you purchased for Temple-TiferethIsrael. Upon arrival at St Paul’s, please pick up your new tickets at the WILL-CALL table in the church lobby. Please allow a little extra time for the re-seating process. 
2. EXCHANGE your tickets for the Wednesday, March 12 performance of O Jerusalem! at the Cleveland Museum of Art (pending availability). Please call the box office at 216-320-0012 x 1 for this option. 
3. DONATE your tickets if you cannot attend the concert, and receive a contribution acknowledgment letter.
