a program of humor and learning.
Washington cultural treasure Murray Horwitz will read from Beryl Isaac,one
of Sholem Aleichem~@~Ys funniest stories.
George Washington University professor Max Ticktin will discuss the
writer's work. The Yiddish-fluent and the Yiddish-challenged alike are
Horwitz has won three Peabody awards and many others in a career that
includes performing, directing, script writing, and managing cultural
programs at NPR,National Endowment for the Arts, and the Silver Spring
American Film Institute. His one-man show on Sholem Aleichem at the New
York Shakespeare was widely acclaimed.
Professor Ticktin is Associate Director of the Judaic Studies Program at
George Washington University. He has taught Hebrew, Yiddish and Judaic
studies to generations of students in the DC area.
The program will conclude with a reading of Sholem Aleichem's will, one of
the great "ethical" wills in history, in both Yiddish and English, and a
performance by Natalie Wexler of his haunting lullaby, "Shlof, Mayn Kind."
