To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:
1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject:Sutzkever reading "The Twin Sisters" on CD

Among the many works of Sutzkever was a poignant story called The 
Twin-Sisters, in the book The Green Aquarium.  We recently had the 
privilege and pleasure ofhearing the C.D of this story, accompanied by the 
dramatic and powerful music of Daniel Galay.

The narration is in Yiddish, with an accompanying booklet in English and 

It was truly a moving experience. We learned later that was first 
performed in Tel Aviv in 2003, on the occasion of Avrom Sutzkever's 90th 
birthday.We highly recommend this experience to all who remember this 
great Yiddish writer.

For C.D. information, contact Daniel Galay (who is also the head of 
Leivick House in Tel Aviv, and the Organization of Yiddish Writers in 
Israel) forinformation or call
972-3-6470522  or Email: asafgl at 012.net.il
