KlezKanada scholarship applications due May 1, 2013

There is no better place to be as the summer winds to an end, than in the Canadian Laurentians, at a B'nai Brith camp only an hour north of Montreal, with just a few hundred of your favorite klezmorim and friends.

KlezKanada's Laurentian Retreat for 2013, the Chai Year, will be Monday August 19 to Sunday August 25. You can get the program from the KlezKanada website, and most important, if you are between 16 and 35, check out the Scholarship Application. According to the website, KlezKanada looks for "individuals with an interest in learning about Yiddish/Jewish culture and its artistic traditions and a desire to develop as artists within these rich traditions, exploring both the roots and contemporary innovations of the culture. We welcome students with interest in a wide variety of areas including music, theatre, dance, visual arts, film, writing and Yiddish studies. Although actual numbers will vary according to the applications received, there are a number of spots reserved for each area of interest."
