      TALK | The Yiddish and Klezmer Music Renaissance: Global Success and Jewish Ambivalence, with Hankus Netsky

      For the past forty years, Eastern European Jewish music has seen an unprecedented international resurgence, both as a traditional wellspring and as a point of departure for diverse creative endeavors. But, despite its success on the world stage, klezmer and Yiddish musical genres have had very little impact within the fields of Jewish education and Jewish studies. In this lecture, Yiddish music scholar Hankus Netsky will explore the reasons why and consider possible paths forward. _____________________________________________________________ Click here to purchase tickets to individual events. _____________________________________________________________ This event is part of Yidstock 2020: The Festival of New Yiddish Music.
