Curated by Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer of the Strauss/Warschauer Duo, this series is dedicated to presenting performances and lectures that reflect the finest current research and creativity in the fields of klezmer music and Yiddish song.
Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer are two of the most beloved performers and teachers in the international klezmer and Yiddish music scene. They were both long-time members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and have performed with violinist Itzhak Perlman on film and in concert. As the Strauss/Warschauer Duo, they have performed to overwhelming acclaim in such diverse venues as the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Jewish Culture Festival in Cracow, the Folksbiene Yiddish Theater in New York City, and the Art of Yiddish in Los Angeles with Theodore Bikel. They lead workshops and classes throughout North America and Europe, and are on the faculty of KlezKamp, KlezKanada and KlezFest at the University of London.

Founded in 2000 by Asya Vaisman, the Columbia Klezmer Band has performed in many cities throughout the Northeast, in venues ranging from Columbia Rennert Hall to Rockefeller Center's Rainbow Room.

His pathbreaking book on the surviving Yiddish community in South Philadelphia and its history has won wide acclaim. On December 4, he joins us to share his knowledge and research. First, Prof. Peltz will speak about the fascinating figure, Ber Borokhov (1880-1917), who was a leading theorist in yiddish research in Russia and a founder of the socialist-zionist movement known as Poalei Zion. Then, Prof. Peltz will move on to a more wide-ranging discussion of the history of Yiddish in America and its lessons.

"Roots" tours of Eastern Europe are all the rage and Edouard is looking to cash-in on Jews eager to visit their shtetl of origin. When it turns-out that the shtetl was destroyed long-ago, Edouard, undeterred convinces a village nearby to act the part. Furthermore, he convinces some of the residents to pose as long-lost relatives for the Western tourists. However, identity and kinship are powerful elements to tamper with and a comically powerful alchemy throws Edouard's best-laid plans into crisis.

Beginning in the Ukrainian metropolis on the Black Sea, this beautiful documentary discovers the remnants of the once thriving Odessan Jewish community and follows it into "exile" amidst the environs of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn and Ashdod, Israel. These former Odessans long for a sense of a belonging that cannot be replicated in their adopted homes despite the cohesive "little Odessas" in which they dwell. While their children adapt to their new homes more easily, the émigrés pine for a paradise lost even as they confess that perhaps it never existed at all. "In Odessa we were Jews, in Israel we are Russians," says one of them, lamenting the exile's dilemma.
