Aaron Lansky, the man who spearheaded what has been called the greatest cultural rescue effort in Jewish history, recounts his poignant, intrepid, and often riotous quest to safeguard a great culture. Join this dynamic and inspirational speaker, who had a vision and made a profound contribution to the preservation of Jewish culture. Neither Yiddish literature, nor Yiddish song would be the same without his efforts.

The KlezmerShack is pleased as punch to do something new by co-sponsoring this event. Do please all show up and let the folks know that the KlezmerShack sent you. Many thanks, ari.
