Welcome to Living Traditions
It is a pleasure to welcome both old and new
friends to our Web site. Through events like KlezKamp:
The Yiddish Folk Arts Program (now in its 29th consecutive
year) and programs such as our Peabody award winning NPR series
Radio Project, our popular KlezKamp RoadShows plus new projects such as our groundbreaking 3 CD Yiddish 78 RPM reissue anthology Cantors, Klezmorim and Crooners 1905-1953: Classic Yiddish 78s From the Mayrent Collection,†Living Traditions is in the forefront of preserving and presenting community based Yiddish culture to new and enthusiastic generations.
If this is your first time with us, take a moment to poke around our homepage and see who we are and what else we do. We hope you will choose to join us in this meaningful and exciting work.
So stay awhile. Have a piece of honeycake. Yiddish culture has never been more at your fingertips.
