Do you love the Barry Sisters? Theodore Bikel? Remember a Yiddish lullaby your grandmother used to sing? Join us for an afternoon of communal Yiddish singing with Lea and Rabbi T and wish them well as they embark on their next adventure. No expertise is necessary, everyone is welcome! We will sing together, schmooze, and reminisce about the greatest Yiddish hits and undiscovered treasures. And always be ready to shake your tukhes!
