A Biselle KlezKamp on July 27, 2014!

Dear friends of Yiddish culture,Slide2

With the warm weather finally upon us, we now turn our attention to the glories of summer, not least of which is A Biselle KlezKamp (a bit of KlezKamp)! Please join us for our next day-long, free event on July 27, 2014, 9am-9pm.

As in previous years, we are pleased to offer a rich mix of programming that includes music, dance, language, art, and cultural studies. Plus, age appropriate children’s programming allows parents to attend classes and children to gain exposure to Yiddish culture.

This year we are especially excited to offer programming about Yiddish culture specifically as it unfolded in the upper Midwest. In addition to talks about Midwestern history, we’re privileged to include public oral history interviews with community elders from Milwaukee and Madison. Check the program for items labelled Viskonsin! 

The rest of the program will be as rich as ever. Our world renowned staff will return with new and diverse offerings, and we’ll have workshops and lectures for those new to Yiddish culture as well as those seeking deep, immersive experience.

Mit groyse un varmste grisn (with warmest greetings),

Henry Sapoznik
Director, Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture
