Aaron Lebedeff A Chazindel In America
Aaron Lebedeff (1873–1960)
In the years when the Yiddish theatre flourished in the United Stales one of the most cheerful and original personalities in Yiddish musical comedy was Aaron Lebedeff, Gifted with a lyric voice, an engaging stage presence, a unique zest for improvisation, clowning and dancing, he undoubtedly had the longest career as a juvenile song-and-dance man in the history of the New York theatre, Yiddish or English. In 1936, Variety cited him, at the age of sixty-two, as “the world’s oldest juvenile”; in 1955, at eighty-two, he was still appearing in musicals in what then remained of the Yiddish theatre.
The ever-young Aaron Lebedeff was born in Homel, White Russia in 1873. As a boy he sang in the local choir, but since he showed no interest in study, his parents, who kept a clothing shop, early apprenticed him to learn a trade. The boy ran away from home to join a Russian theatre troupe touring Bohroisk. Minsk and other cities. After hard times disbanded the group, he returned to Homel, where he opened a dancing school and dabbled in amateur Yiddish theatricals. When one of the early professional Yiddish troupes, headed by Lazar Bernstein, passed through the town, Lebedeff begged for a job with the company and promptly got one – combination chorus boy, porter, wardrobe assistant and prompter. It was not long before he became a character actor, making his debut as the Pipkincr Rav in Shomer’s Baal Tshuva. Then he moved over to operetta, which gave wider scope to his varied talents.
After many years on the road with travelling shows, he finally became a star in Warsaw in 1912-13, where he was known as Der Litvisher Komiker. This was the start of a lifetime career in the theatre, interrupted only by a brief period of military service in Kerensky’s Revolutionary Army in Harbin, Manchuria. Eventually he gathered all his savings together to buy his way out of the army, and began a long trek to the United Stales by way of Siberia. Manchuria, China and Japan. All in all, he spent a year barnstorming in the Orient and in that time managed to master one dialect of Chinese.
Whcn he finally arrived in New York in 1920. he scored an immediate personal success at Boris Thomashcfsky’s storied National Theatre in a play called Liovka Molodez. Thus began sixteen years on Second Avenue, during which he played a full season each year, never missing even a week. Ever gay, in his straw hat and faultlessly tailored clothes, he seemed to many the Maurice Chevalier of the Yiddish stage. He became famous for roles like The Rumanian Litvak, and though after awhile his vehicles assumed a typed character, the audiences loved him. The New York Times in a review in October 1932 commented that he delighted the public in roles in which he was invariably “an ingratiating provincial who is always the victim of misfortune in the first act, only to shine forth resplendent with simoleons and a slick sennet in the closing act.”
At sixty-one, when he was stilt playing romantic leads (albeit wearing a hat to hide a receding hair fine), he divulged to a reporter for the New York American his formula for perpetual youth: “Dress well, eat and drink what you like, and remain constantly in love.” Though he was surrounded by adoring females wherever he went, he remained happily married to the actress Vera Lebedeff (Rebecca Shehtman).
Even the rise of talking pictures and the decline of the Yiddish stage dimmed his luster only slightly, for he went on to star m Yiddish vaudeville at the National and Clinton Theatres, where Yiddish talkies and eight live acts shared the bill. To list all the ephemeral Yiddish plays in which he appeared is almost impossible. Among his notable musicals were My Malkele (1937) and Bublitchki (1938) in which he co-starred with Molly Picon, Yankele Litvak, Yoshke Chvat, Motke from Slobodke, Money Talks, (with Michael Michaclesko, 1952), The Magic Melody (1953) and My Weekend Bride (1955). In 1953 he was one of the famous Yiddish stars honored at a special anniversary performance for Israel Bonds at the National Theatre (and the only one, true to his usual form, who was called back for several encores).
It is interesting to note that Lebedeff wrote many of his Yiddish and English lyrics himself. Most of the lines virtually defy translation, for they are highly idiomatic, with a humor that is difficult to render into English. Ail the songs breathe nostalgia and are magically evocative of the Russian-Rumanian milieu and the immigrant world in New York. The allusions to food and drink are legion; the homesickness is for the village life of the vanished prewar world. For sheer exuberance and uninhibited merry-making, few performers can match Aaron Lebedeff at his best.

Safed, Israel’s mystical holy city
Take a walk with us through the ancient cobblestoned city that is infused with art, music and spirituality.
Licensed tour guide Adam Budenstein calls Safed (Tzfat) a “beautiful, mystical, magical place. Every stone has a different story to it.”
Surrounded by the mountains and forests of the green Upper Galilee, Safed is world-famous for its winding alleyways and old majestic synagogues, its Artists Quarter and its musicians, its history of kabbalah and spirituality.
“But we’re not disconnected from the rest of the world at all,” says Budenstein. “This is a place where people actually come to connect and I would invite you to come and connect yourselves.”

Interview de Marc Chagall à Saint-Paul de Vence en 1967

Marc Zakharovich Chagall (/ʃəˈɡɑːl/ shə-gahl;[nb 1] 6 July [O.S. 24 June] 1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian-French artist.:21 Art critic Robert Hughes referred to Chagall as “the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century” (though Chagall saw his work as “not the dream of one people but of all humanity”). An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.
According to art historian Michael J. Lewis, Chagall was considered to be “the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists”. For decades, he “had also been respected as the world’s preeminent Jewish artist”. Using the medium of stained glass, he produced windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz, windows for the UN, and the Jerusalem Windows in Israel. He also did large-scale paintings, including part of the ceiling of the Paris Opéra. From Wikipedia Photo by Wikipedia
Bess Myerson (July 16, 1924 – December 14, 2014) was an American model, television actress, politician, and civil rights activist who was crowned Miss America in 1945.
At the time of her death, Myerson was the only Jewish Miss America. Myerson won the Miss America beauty pageant at a time when World War II had just ended. Myerson’s winning the title of Miss America took on heightened significance in light of newly emerging information about the Holocaust. In her obituary from The New York Times, it was noted that she was seen as “a hero to the Jewish community.” Myerson biographer Susan Dworkin said that “In the Jewish community, she was the most famous pretty girl sinceQueen Esther.” From Wikipedia Photo by Wikipedia

Minnie (c. 1923 – October 31, 1976) and Clara Bagelman (October 17, 1920 – November 22, 2014), best known under the stage names Merna and Claire Barry, were popular American Klezmer and jazz entertainers from the 1940s to the early 1970s.
Minnie and Clara were born in the Bronx, New York to Ashkenazi Jewish parents, Herman and Ester, from Russia and Austria, respectively, and two younger sisters, Celia and Julia. When Minnie and Clara decided to entertain by singing in Yiddish, as The Bagelman Sisters, their father told them they would need to do it in the manner of the Old World and not with American accents.Photo by Wikipedia

“Hava Nagila” (הבה נגילה Havah Nagilah, “Let us rejoice”) is an Israeli folk song. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. It was composed in 1920s Palestine at a time when Hebrew was first being revived as a spoken language for the first time in 2,000 years (in other words, since 70 CE, the destruction of the Second Temple). For the first time, Palestinian Jews were being encouraged to speak Hebrew as a common language, instead of Yiddish, Arabic, Ladino, or other regional Jewish languages

The Remarkable Life and Afterlife of Sholem Aleichem,,,,,,Solomon Naumovich Rabinovich

Jonathan Brent, Executive Director, YIVO
Jeremy Dauber, Columbia University
Adam Kirsch, The New Republic (Moderator)
Novelist, playwright, journalist, essayist, and editor, Sholem Aleichem was one of the founding giants of modern Yiddish literature. The creator of a pantheon of extraordinary characters, his literature provided readers with a window into the world of Eastern European Jews as they confronted the forces of modernity that tore through Russia at the end of the 19th century. But just as compelling as the fictional lives of his characters, was Sholem Aleichem’s own life story. Born Sholem Rabinovitch in Ukraine in 1859, he endured an impoverished childhood, married into wealth, and then lost it all through bad luck and worse business sense. Turning to his pen to support himself, he switched from writing in Russian and Hebrew to Yiddish in order to create a living body of literature for the Jewish masses. Jonathan Brent, Executive Director at YIVO, Jeremy Dauber, author of the recently published book, ‘The Worlds of Sholem Aleichem: The Remarkable Life and Afterlife of the Man Who Created Tevye’, and Adam Kirsch joined each other on stage for a lively discussion about the fascinating life and work of the “Jewish Mark Twain.”
