The knowledge that Sara Nealy is managing a new opera project is all I need to know to sign up for it. Above and beyond her years of experience at the helm of opera companies, Sara has a deep love for and instinctive understanding of opera and those who make it, impeccable taste, formidable organizational talents, and people skills worthy of a UN ambassador.  She adds class, efficiency, elegance, and good humor to everything she touches.  I can't recommend her highly enough.

The Story of a Torah's Journey

A documentary film about a Holocaust Torah
Written and Directed by Sara Nealy

The premiere of Black Fire White Fire coincides with the anniversary of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass). The widespread violence of Nov. 9-10, 1938 signaled an escalation in the Nazi reign of terror. We intend to mark that sad event with remembrance and hope.
