Our Fourth Zingeray Sing-along of Yiddish Songs

We hope everyone continues to be safe and strong as we begin to emerge from the pandemic. The Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco is pleased to announce our 4th Zingeray, a presentation and singalong of Yiddish songs. Featuring our guest artists:

  • Cantor Sharon Bernstein - Singer, pianist, composer, researcher and international performer of Yiddish and Jewish music. Sharon is Cantor of Congregation Sha'ar Zahav in San Francisco.
  • Cindy Paley – Acclaimed national and international performer and recording artist of Yiddish music. For decades, Cindy has been a music educator and is cantorial soloist at Lev Eisha in LA and the Neshama Minyan at Valley Beth Shalom in Encino, CA.
  • Jane Peppler – Researcher, performer and archivist of the forgotten heritage of Yiddish popular song of the interwar era and the vanished Yiddish cabaret of Poland, as well as pre-Holocaust Yiddish theater music. Jane is also the leading source and reviver of the “Yiddish Penny Songs” of the Ragtime era.
  • Lorin Sklamberg - Lead singer and multi-instrumentalist of the beloved Grammy- winning Klezmatics since their founding in the mid-‘80’s. Lorin continues to be a tireless leading exponent of Yiddish and traditional Jewish song worldwide, and currently serves as Sound Archivist at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

The event is free of charge. Donations can be made using the Donate link on our homepage.

RSVP by sending an email to [email protected]. Please include your full name! We will follow up with a link to the Zoom concert.

We hope to see you June 6th. Abi gezunt, stay safe and strong, and keep singing!
