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.

Hy Wolfe has been singing Yiddish songs since he was 5 years old, and
his work includes acting and singing performances that have been
featured in publications such as the New York Times, The Post and the
Daily News.

As President of the Hebrew Actor’s Foundation, the oldest acting union
in America, Hy works tirelessly to pursue the dream of a "kleyn-kunst"
(small art) Yiddish Theatre and museum located in the storied Hebrew
Actors Union Building in NYC. This theater and museum will highlight
the immigrant experience of Yiddish speakers who first came to America
and the lives they lived. It will also highlight the role Yiddish
theater had in the foundation and growth of Hollywood and Yiddish
Theater’s influence on 20th century theater and music.

Hy will sing a collection of unique songs, like “I’m a Litvak and
She’s a Galitz,” and a repertoire of vintage, rarely-performed Yiddish
songs that deserve a chance to shine once again. Hy translates
everything into English, so, you will follow every moment of the
performance. The 60 minutes flies by and you are transported through
time and space, experiencing an authentic Yiddish performance that
pays tribute to our musical heritage. Hy will once again be
accompanied at the piano by Steve Sterner.
