A Life of Song: Ruth Rubin
Ruth Rubin spent her life collecting, preserving and transmitting the rich legacy of Yiddish folksongs.  Cindy Marshall's moving documentary provides an insightful study of her and the work she loved and believed in. Yiddish love songs, work and protest songs are interwoven with photographs of shtetl life in Eastern Europe. A wonderful remembrance!

"This video is not a music theory analysis of Yiddish folksong but is rather a celebration of Dr. Ruth Rubin and the Yiddish folksong as a product and reflection of Jewish culture."-Video Rating Guide

Avi Hoffman's Too Jewish?
Avi Hoffman’s one-man musical comedy revue is a delightful exploration of Yiddish music, humor, culture and language peppered with a healthy dose of nostalgia. This video has something for everyone. From favorite Yiddish songs, such as Oyfn Pripetshik, Belz and Oyfn Veg Shteyt a Boym to Shakespeare in Yiddish. There are Broadway parodies, like Oy Glaucoma (Oklahoma) along with more somber songs that reference the Holocaust. Too Jewish is certainly anything but!

Come Let Us Dance (Lomir Geyn Tantsn)

We are all familiar with Klezmer music - but what dances go together with the music? In the communities of Central and Eastern Europe, dancing was always present at weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, many spiritual gatherings and other happy occasions.  Miriam Rochlin teaches us the dance steps of a Freylekh and two variations of the Sher.  A protegee of Polish-born dancer/choreographer Nathan Vizonsky, Ms. Rochlin brings the history and context of these dances alive, while filmmaker Karen Goodman enriches our understanding of Jewish dance and culture.
