Episode 79: Ellstein On the Beach
October 8, 2013

A treat! This show is a treat – featuring an interview with Rachel Weston, Rachel McCullough and Hanna Temple who were all part of “Ellstein at the Beach” – a Yiddish spectacle conceived and directed by Jenny Romaine and performed this year at KlezKanada. Vos iz dos? Yiddish coral chorales! Vaser Shiksas! Climate change and theatrical consciousness raising! Elul may have passed, but Jewish culture is here, as ever, to wake us up! All this plus live recordings from the Montreal Jewish Music Festival.

We end the show with sounds from a lider (song) class taught by Adrienne Cooper, of Blessed Memory, at the Arbeter Ring’s “Vokh in Yiddishland”.
