June 11th 2:30 pm is our 91st ANNUAL Concert: A Bintl Briv - In Words and Song
Echos of the Jewish Immigrant Experience
The mass migration of Yiddish speaking Jews from Eastern Europe started in the early 1880s. The Forward, Forverts, a Yiddish daily ewspaper helped immigrants adjust to American life. A particularly popular column was the "Bintel Brief", letters to the editor.
Our program consists of songs and readings of these, and other letters, shedding light on that time, their hopes, dreams and challenges. These letters and songs shed light on that time, inviting us to learn and experience this important chapter of our history.
Translations, and transliterations provided. English narration.
