Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

Dec. 13, 2015

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu 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.


For your listening and viewing pleasure, here, hot off the press, are two
new Yiddish YouTube videos, performed by the Jewish People's Philharmonic
Chorus / JPPC, with yours truly (Binyumen Schaechter) as Conductor.

1) Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" in Yiddish, with the words by I.L. Peretz:
In the two weeks since this video was published on YouTube, it has amassed
over 5000 hits.

2) And here's our brand-new adaptation of the Yiddish theatre classic
"Rumania, Rumania":

Enjoy!  Hots hanoe!

Binyumen Schaechter, dirigent
Der yidisher filharmonisher folkskhor
