Jewish Life in Song with Yosl Kurland and Aaron Bousel
October 14 @ 6:30 am - 7:30 pm
The Jacob Edwards Library will host “Jewish Life in Song” on Thursday, October 14th at 6:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public. All welcome!
Yiddish, the thousand-year-old language of the Jews from Eastern Europe contains within its vocabulary, idiom and grammar the experiences, world view, and culture of Ashkenazic Jewry. In this program, Yosl Kurland will perform Yiddish and Loshn Koydesh (holy tongue or Hebrew) songs of lullabye, love and liturgy, social justice, of kindness and of hope spiced with the humor of Yiddish vaudeville. The Yiddish is made clear with story, explanation, and projected translations. In introducing Jewish music and culture to diverse audiences, Yosl works to foster intercultural understanding. Yosl will be accompanied on accordion by Aaron Bousel.
