Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

Date: May 6, 2019

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.

Oy, America!

Whether through a lament, a comic quip, or a shout of joy, Yiddish
permeates New York City’s extraordinary soundtrack, from the sweatshop
to the stage. Each song tells a story – of a homesick worker, a fallen
soul, a pioneering artist who dared to dream. Join us for an exuberant
exploration of Yiddish song in all of its moods, with laughter, tears,
and a few surprises. Translations are provided.
