Tribute to Fyvush Finkel: 1922-2016
Sholemaleichem.org @ Yidstock
Sholem Aleichem 100th Yortsayt Conference
Sholemaleichem.org Launch Event
The evening was peppered with film clips examining the past and present of Yiddish literature. Bridge of Books, a short film by Citizen Film’s Sam Ball, celebrates the Yiddish Book Center founder Aaron Lansky’s effort to save Yiddish literature. This was followed by two selections from Joe Dorman’s Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness, an excellent portrait of rapidly transforming Jewish life at the turn of the 20th Century.
In the participatory spirit of sholemaleichem.org, we videotaped these live performances and we’ll post them on this page soon! In the meantime, check out the photos from the event.
