Yiddish Celebration a Success!

About 100 people attended the Seattle Polish Film Festival’s Yiddish celebration complete with Klezmer Music. Sasha Senderovich, assistant professor at University of Washington gave an enlightening presentation on the history of Yiddish films, followed by “Yiddle with a Fiddle” starring Mary Picon. Afterwards Peter Lippman talked about Klezmer music and we were treated to a musical performance by Klezmer Local #206.
