Madison Yiddish Choir & Sing-along @ Vishkonsin, Madison, Wisconsin, 26 Mar, 2014

The Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is pleased to announce "Viskonsin! Tales from Yiddish Wisconsin," a new project on Yiddish culture in the upper Midwest. With Viskonsin!, we seek to uncover the often hidden history of Yiddish life in the Midwest which, while it mirrored Jewish communities in larger cities, took on a unique character all its own.

This program will feature invited speakers, community history panels, and a participatory concert and sing-along.
