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.
