Yiddish Worker Songs from our Remarkable Yerushe (Legacy)
May 3 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Yiddish Worker Songs from our Remarkable Yerushe (Legacy) will bring together an all-star cast of Yiddish singers and klezmer musicians from around the world, including: Theresa Tova (Canada); Daniel Kahn (Germany); Svetlana Kundish and Patrick Farrell (Germany); Timur Fishel (Estonia), Psoy Korolenko (New Jersey), Cindy Paley (California), and Sarah Gordon (Brooklyn) — among others.
The artists and songs will be introduced in Yiddish, with English written translation.
The concert will be accompanied by a visual presentation of song lyrics for those who wish to sing along, as well as by historic artwork from the pro-labor movement long central to progressive, Jewish identity. The sing-along is designed both for those who speak Yiddish and those who don’t.
The event is free, but those who are able are encouraged to make a donation to the Workers Circle in support of the organization’s assistance to frontline workers.
