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

The ninth biennial Ashkenaz Festival (ashkenazfestival.com) of New
Yiddish Culture celebrates its return to Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre
from Tuesday, August 28 to Monday, September 3 (Labour Day). With an
entertaining line-up of some of the most prestigious talents of its
kind from more than a dozen countries, the week-long festival features
more than 80 acts and 200 individual artists bringing together music,
theatre, dance, film, art and literature, the best of the global
Jewish, Yiddish and Klezmer culture scene. Most Ashkenaz Festival
programming is provided free of charge. Some highlights include: Yemen
Blues (Israel/NY), purveyors of high-octane world music fusion
combining Yemenite, Middle Eastern and West African influences with
jazz, blues and funk; the innovative "movement theatre" show The
Corpse Bride, based on a classic Yiddish folk tale;The Yiddish Songs
of Arkady Gendler, a special tribute concert and CD release
celebrating the original work of one of the greatest living treasures
of Yiddish song; and the signature Ashkenaz Parade, transforming
Harbourfront Centre into a swirling caravan of music, dance, theatre,
stilt-walkers, and giant puppetry.
