Today, Schechter's PA brought the Klezmer Conservatory Band to the lower school for a concert. We learned some Yiddish words like "freilach" which means happy and also got to hear Klezmer music variations from Romania, the Middle East and America. The concert got me thinking about what Yiddish books were in our library collection. While our collection lists 39 titles if you enter "Yiddish" into the search bar I will focus on just a few that I thought some of you might be interested in knowing about.
Zayde's voice trembled. "In America,"he said, "the soup has lost its flavor. Everyone has mixed too well. No one remembers anymore where they came from. For Yiddish it is the bottom of the ninth, with two outs and no one on base."
I leave you with one more video and a bit of joyous Klezmer music. A special thank you goes to Shula (first grade Judaic's teacher) for her freilach dancing!
