The Weird and Wonderful Latest All-Inclusive Outreach of Yiddish Soul
Huffington Post - 9 months
I arrived at Yiddish Soul, the free Concert at Summerstage in Central Park - presented by the 101-year-old National Yiddish Theatre/Folksbiene as the opening event of its Second Annual KulturfestNYC, expecting the same old, same old - over-vibratoed vocal chords singing "My Yiddish Mama" and "By Mir Bist Du Shain" to the de rigueur grey-haired seniors who display more nostalgia for their Jewish upbringing now than they felt when they were living through it. Boy, was I in for a surprise! Yiddish Soul was an inclusive, international leap of faith, a mix of old and new designed to attract everyone and anyone from the religiously affiliated to the ethnically non-religious and hopefully their non-Jewish partners, particularly young families with children who seemed pleased enough with their Yiddishkeit - Jewish heritage - to dance in circles in the aisles. WFMU's Nachum Segal hosted, welcomed one and all and reminded anyone who could eat a little something that Mendy's Booth was sel ...

From Here to 'Afar': The Art of Peter Forgacs
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
"Warsaw," a 35-minute video, is part of the "Letters to Afar" exhibition at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, on view through May 24. Courtesy of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, New York "Once upon a time" is a phrase we use for fairy tales and fables. Yet most Jews carry with them another time, another land, another city. It could be the Pale of Settlement or Vilnius, Krakow or Lvov or, in more recent times, the Lower East Side, the Bronx, Tehran, Moscow, Buenos Aires or even the Tel Aviv that once was. Perhaps in the future we will say the same for Paris, Manchester or Copenhagen. Quien Sabe? That feeling of being in two places, two time periods, at once, is part of the experience of "Letters to Afar," a remarkable exhibit on view through May 24 at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco (CJM), a video and sound installation by Hungarian artist Péter Forgács that combines Polish/Jewish "found footage" (home movies, travelogues) made between 1918 a ...

To the beat of their own drum: Street music fest promises surprises
The Brooklyn Paper - over 3 years
Note: More media content is available for this story at BrooklynPaper.com. By Ruth Brown for The Brooklyn Paper Honk if you love flugelhorn solos, marching bands dressed as rabbits, and sidewalk dance parties. Honk NYC, the annual festival showcasing brass and street bands, is back in town, bringing an eclectic parade of eccentric musicians to Brooklyn’s streets, bars, and art galleries, not to mention its parks and subways. “It’s pretty wild,” said JR Hankins, a member of Brooklyn-based Balkan brass band Veveritse, which has been playing the festival for four years. “There’s tons of costumery, lots of dancing, good socializing, and silliness.” The event began as an unofficial after-party for the original Honk festival in Boston, but became a festival in its own right in 2009, first taking the name Bonk, short for Brooklyn Honk. And though the revelry now takes place across the city, Brooklyn remains at the heart of the event. Six local bands are on the bill and the five ...

Richard Z. Chesnoff: It's Kool to be Kosher in Poland: the Krakow Jewish Culture Festival
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Poland's parliament recently voted to uphold a controversial ban on ritual Jewish butchering -- an otherwise lucrative international enterprise for the export hungry nation. That not withstanding, everything else Jewish seems to have become decidedly kosher in the Polish Republic. Seven decades after more than 90 percent of Poland's Jewish population of 3.6 million was slaughtered by the Nazis (with an occasional assist from a few local anti-Semites) everything from Jewish history to Jewish food to Jewish music to Jewish art has suddenly become Poland's in-thing. The capital city of Warsaw itself recently feted the opening of an amazingly lavish Museum of the History of Polish Jews. Located at the edge of where the infamous Warsaw Ghetto once stood, it tells the rich tale of more than a thousand years of Polish-Jewish life -- a subject generally and pointedly ignored in the post-war years, both by Communists and non-Communists. . These days Po ...
