CLEVELAND – The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announces the opening of “Amnon’s Workshop,” a photographic documentary featuring the work of celebrated Cleveland photographer, Cuyahoga Community College Associate Professor, and Cleveland Heights resident, Daniel Levin, M.F.A. All are invited to meet the artist at a free Open House on Sunday, September 20 from 1 – 4 p.m. in the Roe Green Gallery at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building, 25701 Science Park Drive in Beachwood. Gallery talks will be at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

The exhibit follows Levin’s travels to Israel, as he documented the work of master violin maker Amnon Weinstein. “Amnon’s Workshop” captures intimate images of the man behind “Violins of Hope” as he lovingly restores and gives new voice to stringed instruments that survived the horrors of the Holocaust, even when their owners perished.

“Amnon’s Workshop” is just one exhibit in Violins of Hope Cleveland, a landmark project among seven premier non-profit organizations in Cleveland. The focal point of Violins of Hope Cleveland is a unique collection of violins that were witness to Jewish perseverance during the Holocaust and convey a story of endurance and resilience through the power of music. For a complete list of events, please visit www.violinsofhopecle.org.

Additional Gallery Open Houses are on October 11 and November 8 from 1-4 p.m. No registration is required. To schedule group tours, email israelarts@jcfcleve.org or call 216-593-2856.

Artist Daniel Levin is available for interviews. For all media inquiries, contact Rebecca Stolarsky at or 216-593-2877 (office).

This exhibition is presented by the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection, a program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. It is sponsored with support from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
