2012 Program Brochure/Catalog

This year’s theme, Humor, will allow us to explore one of the most dynamic and longlasting characteristics of Yiddish culture. Humor underlies a vast segment of our cultural experience as an art, as a weapon and as a survival mechanism. It is also an elemental part of our world view and has helped us balance our chiaroscuro historic experience. What better place to explore the underpinnings of Yiddish humor than in the Catskills, the breeding ground for American comedy for most of the 20th century?
