"We are a parish that is open to the outside world and cultivates its traditions on the inside. In the area of tension between tradition and modernity, Janusz E. Pawelczyk-Kissin, Rabbi of the Jewish Community Heidelberg, has found an attitude of pleasant clarity. A clarity that names conflicts and attacks, seeks dialogue and does not exclude reconciliation. A clarity that is suitable for creating a home in the rite and thereby - especially important in an age of isolation - providing orientation for people in the community and as a community: spiritually as well as mentally. In addition, Rabbi Pawelczyk-Kissin, who is also cantor of the Heidelberg congregation in a double capacity and plays the guitar in his scarce free time, is a great connoisseur and lover of music. His horizons range from classical and spiritual music to jazz and Jewish table songs. Incidentally, his son Mischa, who is currently finishing his bachelor's thesis in "sound" at the Babelsberg Film University, worked for a major classical music label for about two years before graduating - and for ECM. Since then, both share a love for the productions of this currently most important record company in jazz. For our matinee, Rabbi Pawelczyk-Kissin has put together a very special playlist together with his son, who will play the music: an autobiography in sound, which will form the thread for a conversation full of insights that are as exciting as they are wise.
