Purim Event - Megilla Reading and more in Yiddish.
Join the Museum and the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene for a simkhe (celebration) in honor of Purim. The evening will feature a lively reading of the Meglies Ester (Book of Esther) in Yiddish, as translated by the great poet Yehoash, followed by a festive musical performance. The reading will include English subtitles so all can follow along. Wear a costume at home!
The program will also include a presentation of historic artifacts from the Museum’s collection illustrating Purim and its role in 20th century European Jewish communities.
A $10 suggested donation enables us to present programs like this one. We thank you for your support.
