Yiddish Summer Weimar 2014: NEW YIDDISH CULTURE
July 19 - August 17, 2014
Artistic Director: Alan Bern
Welcome to the website of Yiddish Summer Weimar, the intercultural Yiddish culture festival, where people of all ages, religions and cultures are welcome. At our festival, we see Yiddish culture as a huge river with thousands of tributaries, flowing through time and place, connecting and enriching cultures in Europe and throughout the world, and being enriched by them in return.
In 2014, our special topic is New Yiddish Culture. With internationally renowned artists, we'll explore some of the latest happenings in Yiddish music, dance, literature and more. At Yiddish Summer Weimar, we not only present new Yiddish culture, we create it!
Here's an overview of the workshops, concerts and other events being planned. Please check back soon for more details.
Workshop registration opens in early 2014. If you'd like to be notified when it begins, please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
