National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene and the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust bring together – for two performances only – some of the most renowned Yiddish musicians from across the globe for the American premiere of the new Yiddish theatrical concert pleytem tsuzamen (Refugees Together). A star-studded cast of master singers from across the world – Ukraine, Latvia, Berlin, England, and the Americas – will perform a contemporary musical commentary on what it means to be a refugee, weaving a defiant garment of hope in a threatening and threatened world. “pleytem tsuzamen” (Refugees Together) is a call for solidarity with those who are most threatened. Confronting our current reality, these new Yiddish songs present a dynamic fusion of traditional forms with the social, political, and personal challenges posed by the world today — and they embody the power of music to foster the courage we need to “link arms and take to the streets together against bloodshed and hatred.” Second performance at 6pm.
