Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

October 16, 2012

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.

On November 4th, there is going to be a staged reading in English by
Threshold Theatre of Toronto of Chava Rosenfarb's play "The  Bird of
the Ghetto." The play tells the story of the Vilna Ghetto resistance
leader Isaac Wittenberg. It was originally written and published in
Yiddish. It was performed by the Habimah in Israel in a Hebrew
translation in the late 1960s. The present production uses my
translation into English. I am attaching the link to the poster.


Also, for those who are not aware of it, Rosenfarb's essay on the Lodz
ghetto poet, Simkha-Bunim Shayevitch was published in English in
September in Tablet Magazine . The link is:
