Friday, January 12, 2018, 7:00pm
Congregation Mishkan Israel
785 Ridge Road
Hamden, Connecticut

This is the synagogue where we first started our project twenty years ago. This year is Rabbi Herbert Brockman’s last year leading the service as he will be retiring from Mishkan Israel in June. So this is a service that will be emotional and intense on many levels as Rabbi Brockman has always served as a beacon for social justice in the New Haven area and while we welcome change, in this case it will be bittersweet. The service is at 7:30 pm, but we will be giving a short pre-service concert beginning at 7:00 p.m. I hope you can join us for the entire evening as it sure to be one filled with hope and tears.

Lyubtshe: Yiddish Folksongs of Women

1/23/18 at 7pm
376 9th St,
Brooklyn, NY 11215

$10 suggested donation

French violonist and singer Eleonore Biezunski has been exploring the Yiddish traditions of the old and new world for quite some time now – both as a musician and as a archivist for YIVO. For this new project, she will be joined by Lauren Brody (vocals, accordion).
Lauren Brody, a founding member of both Kapelye and Mikveh, is one of the world’s foremost experts in traditional Bulgarian music, and her singing and accordion-playing in Yiddish performances is legendary. She travels the world as a bearer of Yiddish musical tradition.
Together they will explore a repertoire of women’s Yiddish folksongs, orally transmitted to them or preserved with great care and love by folklorists such as Ruth Rubin
