$29.95
A nostalgic look at the music of Eastern European Jewry. In this video, we are treated to Yiddish folksongs, the liturgical music of the synagogue, Klezmer melodies as well as Yiddish theater tunes, all of which are the essential components of Ashkenazic music. The joy and the sadness, the sacred and the secular, the old world and the new, are all represented in this compilation of Jewish music of Eastern Europe. Along with contemporary performances by such actors as Shmuel, Henya and Anat Atzmon, the video features vintage archival footage of life in Eastern Europe as it existed prior to World War II.
