JFCS of the Suncoast in collaboration with community partners, presents the Project of Unity series, a program of events held between February and March 2019. The series includes educational and cultural events designed to help people better understand the fundamental values behind different faiths and common principles, through the story of the prophet Elijah. Mendelssohn’s powerful choral masterpiece brings to life some of the most dramatic moments in the Old Testament. Fire comes from the heavens, storms gather, and the people cry for vengeance. From the prophet’s curse of drought to confronting an evil queen, to his ascent to heaven on a fiery chariot, Elijah is an extraordinary musical experience.
