Using the book, A Bintel Brief, Sixty Year of Letters from the Lower East Side to the Jewish Daily Forward, a professional director will guide local amateurs in a stages reading, interwoven with incidental Yiddish music.

Having escaped from depressing and dangerous times in Eastern Europe, the lives of many thousands were being rebuilt in the crowded tenements of the Lower East Side. They relied on their Yiddish newspaper, Der Forvertz, as the only familiar to find their spoken language in writing. They begged the editor, Abraham Cahan, for advice.

Adults $15
Students $8

A wonderful performance followed by light refreshments and talk-back session. Talented director is sure to elicit a wonderful performance from volunteers who have worked hard to portray our ancestors and their bittersweet, poignant and humorous situations.
