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

KLEZKAMP December 25-30
The 27th Annual Yiddish Folk Arts Program-Yiddish Theater.

The world's most famous and longest running Yiddish cultural experience 
returns for a 27th year to explore one of the most dynamic products of 
Yiddish culture: its theater. From its snappy and memorable songs to the 
deathless plays that made its productions magnets for Jews and non-Jews 
alike, the Yiddish theater is still with us: its effects are timeless and 
its influence on American popular culture undeniable.

Special theater-theme classes at KlezKamp include Tearjerkers, Operettas 
and Haunted Tales (Miriam Isaacs), Yiddish Film Musicals of Abe Ellstein 
(Ron Robboy), Musical Theater-Joseph Rumshinsky (Ron Robboy),  The World 
of Nahum Stutchkoff (Amanda Miryam-Khaye Seigel) and How Radio Saved the 
Yiddish Theater (myself). More than 60 of the world's  finest teachers 
will offer more than 50 classes in instrumental music, song, Yiddish 
language, food, crafts, folklore and dance. We also offer a world-class 
KlezKids program, outstanding evening programs and dancing till the wee 
hours to live bands.

Our home, The Hudson Valley Resort and Spa, is a modern hotel mit alle 
mayles (with all the trimmings) in the Catskill tradition, whose 
world-class kitchen and traditional fare is, as always, under the shtreng 
Glatt kosher hashgokhe of Ha'rov Gershon Kreuser.

BRING A NEW FRIEND DISCOUNT: $50 off for your first referral. 
RATE for full-time college students
