Dr. Miriam Isaacs, NYC, 18 Jul 2016

Dr. Miriam Isaacs
"Songs from a Lost World: Singing as Resistance and Renewal in New York, 1948"

Monday, July 18, 2016, 6:30 p.m.
Mid-Manhattan Library, New York Public Library
Fifth Avenue and 40th Street,
New York, NY

Fully accessible to wheelchairs

Sponsored by the Dorot Jewish Division

In 1948, only three years after the war, Ben Stonehill recorded over a thousand songs from Holocaust survivors temporarily housed in a hotel in upper Manhattan. In this presentation, sociolinguist and Yiddish scholar Dr. Miriam Isaacs will explore the meaning of that archive and discuss what these songs tell us about the inner world of refugees and survivors. Many of these songs are rare, some written in the camps or by partisans. Among the most important of the singers was Shmerke Kaczerginski, a partisan and poet and the collector and an actress, Diana Blumenfeld.

Miriam Isaacs received her MA and Ph.D. at Cornell in linguistics. She has specialized in Yiddish language and literature. She was born in a German DP camp and grew up in Yiddish speaking enclaves of Montreal and Brooklyn, New York, graduating from Brooklyn's Erasmus High School and Brooklyn College. She has been working on creating a new website which makes available the lyrics to many of these songs. She will play cuts of the original songs, sung by men, women and children, mainly in Yiddish, but also Russian and Hebrew. Collectively, this body of song constitutes a haunting testimony to survivors’ resilience, courage and humor.

The program is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

Three For Silver runs off the friction of opposing forces. Thunderous bass and dreamy melody, baritone growl and smooth soprano, new music and timeworn style. The band creates a sound that is both wholly unique and yet familiar. If it's retro, no one has found its time period. If it's folk music, no one has found its country of origin

Sacred Ecstasy in Sufism and Hasidic-Judaism
Led by Yuval Ron

July 28-31, 2016
Episcopal House of Prayer,
Collegeville, MN 56321

Fee: $435 including accommodations and meals
To register and more info: ehouseofprayer.org/programs

This retreat will provide an experiential spiritual exploration into the inner workings of devotional ecstatic Hasidic-Hebrew music and dance, and the Sufi practices of moving prayer-mediation ritual. We will explore how one transcends the limits of reality, reaching toward the non-dual state, using music and movement in these mystical practices. This will include the historic foundations as well as the growing body of music and variety of ways in which these two traditions create a devotional trance. Participants will discover how sacred sound facilitates in transcending mind-chatter, tuning into the heart for a deeper experience of Oneness and inner peace. Yuval will bring his gifts of live music to this work.
