Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture announced for University of Wisconsin-Madison

When I drove over to Madison last spring to listen to a concert set up for a mini-KlezKamp, it was clear that everyone was having a good time. (I did, too.)

Behind the scenes, more was happening. Here is an excert from the KlezKamp blog:

"The initial funding for the institute is made possible by a generous gift from Sherry Mayrent and Carol Master. The Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture will be a unique facility devoted to fostering an understanding of the world of Yiddish through its arts. The institute will be directed by Henry Sapoznik."

Read more details on the KlezKamp blog from last month.
