Yiddish sounds again
On Friday, November 25 the Concert Hall of the KJJC was full. “Yiddish Lid” (Yiddish Song) Theater from Israel presented a potpourri program in the frames of the 8th International Theatre Festival “Moldfest. Rampa. Ru” that took place in Chisinau. More than this, Vera Lozinski, the soloist, was born in Beltsy where she lived 16 years before making alia to Israel. She together with the concertmaster Alla Dantsig presented a brilliant duet of high musical professionals and just nice ladies.
The program that lasted over one hour recalled to many people from the audience the times of their childhood and youth when Yiddish was a vibrant alive language around which a whole culture was built.
“To be sincere, I just cried”, confessed Mira. “These melodies are from 50-60 years back for me. They came and gone with my grandmas, my mom. I feel so excited to hear them again!”
KJJC is a constant partner of the Festival organizers – Chisinau State Youth Theatre “From the Rose Street” and the “Russian World” Fund. The Festival is one of the most attractive cultural events of the year where creative groups from Russia, Israel, Ukraine, Germany, Lithuania, Georgia, Romania, etc. take part.
