A Song to Life
Poet, Memoirist, Philanthropist

Wednesday, July 6, 2005 at 5:30 P.M in the audtiorium of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, 15 East 16 St, New York, we will pay tribute to Eda Fasman Taub: the person, the writer, the cultural activist and friend.

The program will feature Itshe Goldberg of the Yiddishe Kultur and Susan Leviton, Beloved singer of Yiddish folksongs, and Readings from Eda's Poetry and Memoirs

All her life, Eda tried to ensure, both spiritually and financially, the survival of Yiddish language, literature and culture. Without her help dozens of Yiddish books would have gone unpublished. Her ideals and memory live on in the generous legacy she left for the organizations whose goals she held near and dear.

You are cordially invited. Admission Free.
