Subject:  KlezKamp 24


Living Traditions is proud to announce the 24th annual KlezKamp: The 
Yiddish Folk Arts Program to be held December 21-26, 2008 at the Hudson 
Valley Resort and Spa in Kerhonkson, New York.

 This year's theme "AshkeNosh! Yiddish Culture/Yiddish Food" examines 
the sumptuous bounty of traditional food in Yiddish life.

 With special presentations on Jewish foods by* Michael * ("Born to 
Kvetch")* Wex, * Yiddish foodie blogger* Eve Jochnowitz* and 
novelist/translator* Curt Leviant * the KlezKamp program features a 
staff of over fifty of the world's greatest Yiddish performers, 
linguists, folklorists, dancers, visual artists  and klezmer musicians 
including* Michael Winograd, Pete Sokolow,   Susan Leviton, Josh 
("So-Called") Dolgin * and* Steve Weintraub* plus an unrivaled 
children's program under the direction of * Sarah Gordon* and* Marilla 
Wex. *

KlezKamp has become more than merely an annual program.  It has inspired 
numerous events around the globe and has become a singular model for how 
traditional culture can survive and thrive in today's disposable world. 
Come to KlezKamp and be part of Yiddish Culture for the 21st Century.
