Two upcoming Yiddish events not to be missed:
This Thursday, a rare New York appearance by two men on the cutting edge of jumpsuit and beard technology, brothers by a different mother and father, Daniel Kahn (Detroit, Berlin) and Psoy Korolenko (Moscow, Outer Space).
At the JCC of Manhattan, Thursday January 12, at 8:00 pm. $20.*
And Sunday, January 29th at 1:30 pm at the Sholem Aleichem Center in the Bronx, California based operatic bass, Anthony Russell, performing the repertoire of Yiddish legend Sidor Belarsky. Belarsky is probably best known to the movie going public through the use of his version of Dem Milner's Trern in the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man.
