Itche Goldberg interviewed in YIddish

In this film (83 minutes) in Yiddish , 101-year-old educator, essayist, literary critic, poet, and editor Itche Goldberg discusses his life: his upbringing, schooling in Poland and Canada, his work as an educator and editor and his views as a literary critic. Itche speaks candidly with interviewer Eugene Orenstein of McGill University about the linke shuln (progressive schools), which he helped to shape, and very honestly assesses their strengths and shortcomings. Among other things, he recalls both a conflict with famed anarchist Emma Goldman and “kashering” a Yiddish reader with a photo of Lenin! What emerges is a multi-faceted picture of the world of a man who attended the funeral of the great Yiddish writer I.L. Peretz over 90 years ago and who remained creatively, intellectually and politically active in the Yiddish world until his death at 102!

Itche Goldberg (1904-2006) was born in Apt, Poland, and grew up in Warsaw. Since his arrival in Canada in 1920 as a teenager, the name Itche Goldberg has been synonymous with the linke (progressive) Yiddish movement. In 1925 Itche started Yungvelt, Canada’s first secular Jewish children’s camp. In 1932 he moved to New York City and from 1933 until the mid-1970s he was director of the Yiddish schools and cultural programs of the International Workers Order/Jewish People’s Fraternal Order (JPFO).(Beginning in 1953, following the dissolution of the IWO due to McCarthyism, the schools were run by the newly named Service Bureau for Jewish Education.) Itche edited Yidishe Kultur and the children’s magazine Yungvarg. In the 1950s he established the Zhitlowsky Foundation for Jewish Culture. He is the recipient of two major literary awards: Israel’s Itsik Manger Prize in 1985 and the Dovid Hofshteyn Prize in 1990. His latest book Eseyen — Tsvey (Essays — Two) was published in 2006.

Eugene Orenstein is Associate Professor in the Dept. of Jewish Studies at McGill University where he teaches modern Jewish history and Yiddish literature. He was a student in the Ordn-shuln (schools of the Jewish People’s Fraternal Order) where Itche Goldberg was his teacher. This was the beginning of a lifelong friendship.

‫A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity אַ יום־טובֿ פֿון ייִדישער שאַפֿערישקייט‬

A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity

On Sunday, May 5, 2013, the League for Yiddish held a historic program, “A Celebration of Yiddish Creativity,” in honor of the publication of its book, New Yiddish Literature, Afn Shvel Issue # 358-359.

The program features: greetings from Prof. David G. Roskies of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America; dramatic readings from the book by actor Hy Wolfe; a discussion on “Prospects for Contemporary Yiddish Writing” with Professors Marc Caplan, Dov-Ber Kerler, and Sheva Zucker; and new Yiddish songs composed and sung by Josh Waletzky. (Those interested will be able to hear the songs when Waletzky’s new CD is released.)

The volume being honored (see the cover and excerpts at…) encompasses the work of 30 people writing in Yiddish, ranging from college students to venerable older Yiddish writers, living on four continents and in seven countries.

The evening was organized in partnership with the Program in Modern Jewish Studies of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.

If Books Could Talk: The Story of Three Jewish Treasures Rescued from the Vilna Ghetto

Monday, November 24, 2014 | 7pm
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

Ruth Gay Seminar in Jewish Studies

What are the secret lives of books? In the Vilna Ghetto, Yiddish poets Abraham Sutzkever and Szmerke Kaczerginski and others risked their lives to rescue Jewish treasures from destruction and looting by the Nazis. David Fishman (Jewish Theological Seminary) selects three of the extraordinary items they saved—Theodor Herzl’s diary, the minute-book from the Vilna Gaon’s synagogue, and an original manuscript of Jacob Gordin’s classic Yiddish play ‘Mirele Efros’—and reveals their “biographies”: their composition and significance; the story of their acquisition by YIVO; their rescue; and their retrieval after Vilna’s liberation. Two of these works were safely transported to YIVO in New York, but the third work encountered a very different fate in Soviet Lithuania.

The Ruth Gay Seminar in Jewish Studies was established in 2008 in honor of Ruth Gay (1922-2006), the noted American Jewish historian and writer, with a generous gift from the family of Ruth Gay. The seminar series is given by scholars who have conducted research in the YIVO Archives and wish to share their work with the public.

Natalie Portman’s “A Tale of Love and Darkness”

Based on Amos Oz’s novel, “A Tale of Love and Darkness” tells the story of the author’s childhood during the transitive years when Palestine was reclassified as Israel. The clip is about the “Paraable f Two Monks”.

סיפור על אהבה וחושך-מסע אל רובנו של עמוס עוז

Fania Oz returns to family building in the city Rivne, Ukraine
בספר, שעלילתו אינה קווית, מתאר עוז בגוף ראשון ילדות בשכונת כרם אברהם, בירושלים ונעורים בקיבוץ חולדה. הסיפור מתנהל על רקע תקופת המנדט והחיכוך עם ערביי ארץ ישראל, הקמת המדינה ושנותיה הראשונות. עוז מתאר גם את הדורות הקודמים של משפחתו המזרח אירופאית.

הספר, בנוסף להיותו תיעוד תרבותי, הוא תיאור אישי וכאוב מאוד של ילדות בצל נישואיהם המיוסרים של הוריו: אם דיכאונית ואב מלומד, קרוב אך גם מרוחק, שהקריירה שלו הוחמצה בצלו של הדוד הגדול. הטרגדיה המשפחתית מגיעה לשיאה כאשר אמו של עמוס, ילד בן שתים עשרה, מתאבדת אחרי תקופה ארוכה של ייסורי נפש.

הספר רצוף בהרהורים פוליטיים וספרותיים ומצייר בעוקצנות, אך גם במידה של אמפתיה, אנשי רוח ופוליטיקאים בהם נתקל: דוֹד אביו, חוקר תקופת בית שני, יוסף קלוזנר, ש”י עגנון, שגר בסמוך לקלוזנר, דוד בן-גוריון, שהתכתב עם עוז מעל דפי דבר והזמינו לפגישה, ואחרים. אהבתו הראשונה של עוז, הייתה, כך הוא מספר, המשוררת זלדה, שלימדה אותו בכיתה ב’. אחד הקטעים המרשימים בספר הוא זה שבו נזכר עוז בפרץ השמחה העצום עם אישור האו”ם את תוכנית החלוקה ב-כ”ט בנובמבר.

Celebrating Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary with Channel 2 – Sivan Rahav Meir

Wikimedia Israel looked for a special way to celebrate the Hebrew Wikipedia 10th anniversary – something that has never been done before.
The result was a unique collaboration with TV Channel 2, the most viewed channel in Israel! For an entire week, five of the most senior Channel 2 reporters, who learned to edit Wikipedia by our volunteers, wrote or extended an article on Hebrew Wikipedia.
Then, each recorded a one minute video, explaining why they have decided to write on this specific topic. Every day, just before the evening news broadcast, the video was broadcasted and while the anchor presented the project, he explained “we wanted to celebrate Wikipedia’s 10th anniversary and show that everyone can write an article on Wikipedia” .

Happy Birthday Wikipedia!

Reportajes y documentales: 90 minutos Alemania-Israel

90 minutos Alemania-Israel – Fútbol entre Tel Aviv y BerlínCuando el Bayern Múnich juega en torneos internacionales, sus seguidores israelíes en Tel Aviv no pierden detalle. Cuando el jugador israelí Almog Cohen llegó a Núremberg, fue recibido por los hinchas locales con banderas de Israel. Y un alemán, Michael Nees, diseña el futuro del fútbol israelí como director técnico de la selección sub-21 y director técnico de la federación. Todo esto era impensable hace 50 años, cuando Alemania e Israel establecieron lazos diplomáticos. El fútbol jugó, y juega, un papel protagónico en la normalización de las relaciones germano-israelíes. Pero, ¿de qué hablamos cuando decimos “normales”? ¿Cómo viven los futbolistas judíos en Alemania? Y, ¿cómo vive un entrenador alemán en Israel, flanqueado por la realidad en Oriente Medio y el lastre de la historia?

Hava Nagila – Amrutam Gamaya – Music Mojo Season 3 – KappaTV

It is considered to be 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.

The Lady Lifers: A moving song from women in prison for life

The ten women in this chorus have all been sentenced to life in prison. They share a moving song about their experiences — one that reveals their hopes, regrets and fears. “I’m not an angel,” sings one, “but I’m not the devil.” Filmed at an independent TEDx event inside Muncy State Prison, it’s a rare and poignant look inside the world of people imprisoned with no hope of parole.

Israel – what a beautiful country

The renewed growth of anti-Israeli attitudes is also irritating. Old and new resentments are being nurtured, revived, and advanced. Irraels will for self-defense and self-preservation is being distorted, and Israels right to act accordingly is being disputed. In this respect, our sympathy has certain priorities, and the latent left-wing anti-Zionism is shocking and annoying. Comparing Israelis with Nazis, calling their politics fascistic should in turn regard Germans as victims of an unaccepted defeat. Those who sell the terror initiated by the Palestinians as fight for freedom and who deny Israel the right for self-defense, who deny the positive sides of this one and only respectable justice system in the Near-East, nauseate us with their ideological untruthfulness.

Janusz Korczak and the children, memorial at Yad Vashem

Janusz Korczak

From Wikipedia,

Janusz Korczak, the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit[1] (22 July 1878 or 1879 – August 7, 1942[2]), was a Polish-Jewish educator, children’s author, and pediatrician known as Pan Doktor (“Mr. Doctor”) or Stary Doktor (“Old Doctor”). After spending many years working as director of an orphanage in Warsaw, he refused freedom and stayed with his orphans when the institution was sent from the Ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp, during the Grossaktion Warsaw of 1942.[3]   Photo by Wikipedia  Read More Button--orange

The Last Korczak Boy

Itzchak Belfer never really left Yanusz Korczak’s orphanage on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw, Poland. Even though he is now 90 years old, a well-known Israeli artist, he will always be little Itzchakele from Warsaw, and Korczak is always with him in thought and spirit. The Polish doctor and educator lives on in Belfer’s drawings and paintings, and Yanusz Korczak’s spirit dwells in the artist’s soul.

Belfer shares with us his amazingly clear memories from the orphanage on Krochmalna Street in pre-World War II Warsaw. He reveals Korczak’s unique view of children as, first of all, human beings to be treated with the same dignity and consideration as adults.

He warmly describes the work of Korczak and his assistant, Stepha Wilczyńska, at the orphanage, their love for the children and their total dedication to saving them, which led to their tragic end.

Janusz Korczak

(Source: Yad Vashem)…

(Pen name of Henryk Goldszmit; 1878/9-1942)

Polish Jewish doctor, author and educator. Born in Warsaw to an assimilated Jewish family, Korczak dedicated his life to caring for children, particularly orphans. He believed that children should always be listened to and respected, and this belief was reflected in his work. He wrote several books for and about children, and broadcast a children’s radio program. In 1912 Korczak became the director of a Jewish orphanage in Warsaw.

When World War II broke out in 1939, Korczak first refused to accept the German occupation and heed their regulations (consequently spending time in jail). However, when the Jews of Warsaw were forced to move into a ghetto, Korczak refocused his efforts on the children in his orphanage. Despite offers from Polish friends to hide him on the “Aryan” side of the city, Korczak refused to abandon the children.

On August 5, 1942, during a 2-month wave of deportations from the ghetto, the Nazis rounded up Korczak and his 200 children. They marched in rows to the Umschlagplatz with Korczak in the lead. He never abandoned his children, even to the very end. Korczak and the children were sent to Treblinka, where they were all murdered.

The Exodus as Cultural Memory- Ron Hendel

Ron Hendel Ph.D., Norma and Sam Dabby Professor of Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies, University of California at Berkeley
The Exodus is a central event in biblical and Jewish memory. But according to the archaeological and historical record, it is unclear what it is a memory of. I propose that it is, in part, a transformed memory of the demise of the Egyptian Empire in Canaan, which facilitated the emergence of Israel as an independent people. The story served as an engine of a distinctive cultural identity, a function that it continues to perform today.

Lia van Leer

From Wikipedia,

Lia van Leer (Hebrew: ליה ון ליר‎, August 8, 1924 – March 13, 2015) was a pioneer in the field of art film programming and film archiving in Israel. She was the founder of the Haifa Cinematheque, the Jerusalem Cinematheque, the Israel Film Archive and theJerusalem Film Festival.

Lia van Leer (Greenberg) was born on August 8, 1924 in the Bessarabian city of Bălți, then in Romania, now in Moldova. Her father, Simon Greenberg, was a wheat exporter and her mother, Olga, was a WIZO volunteer. She attended a public high school and spent summer holidays in the Carpathian mountains. In 1940, her parents sent her to Palestine to visit her sister Bruria, a dentist, who had immigrated in 1936 and was living in Tel Aviv. She never saw her parents again.[1] In July 1941, the Germans occupied Beltsy and murdered her father and other Jewish community leaders. Her mother and grandmother were deported to Transnistria and died in a concentration camp. Lia moved to Jerusalem in 1943 to attend the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 1952, she married Wim Van Leer, a Dutch engineer, pilot, playwright and film producer, and settled in Haifa.[2] They founded the country’s first film club in 1955.Read More Button--orange

ליה ון ליר בפתיחת סינמטק ירושלים המחודש 2007 Lia Van Leer

פתיחת סינמטק ירושלים המחודש בקיץ 2007 היה אחד ההישגים החשובים של ליה ון ליר. לסינמטק נוסף אגף חדש ובו שני אולמות חדישים ושטחי האיכסון של אוסף הסרטים הורחבו. בסרט קצר זה תיעדתי את ליה באחד הרגעים השמחים בחייה.באמצע שנות השמוים לחייה היתה שופעת מרץ ורעיונות לקידום תרבות הקולנוע בישראל ובמיוחד בירושלים. אני רוצה להאמין שהסינמטק יקרא על שמה. “סינמטק ירושלים ע”ש ליה ון ליר”

ליה ון ליר – הגברת הראשונה של תעשיית הקולנוע בישראל – מברכת את הבמה הרעיונית ה – 2 של א.מ.י.ר.

ליה ון ליר, כלת פרס ישראל והגברת הראשונה של תעשיית הקולנוע בישראל, מספרת על אהבתה לקולנוע, זיכרונות מבית אמא ברומניה, מביעה דעה על הקולנוע הרומני ומברכת על הישגי קהילת יהודי רומניה.
הראיון התקיים במסגרת הבמה הרעיונית השנייה ע”ש יצחק ארצי ז”ל של ארגון א.מ.י.ר. – ארגון מאוחד של יוצאי רומניה בישראל הדואג לשימור והנצחת מורשת יהדות רומניה ומנציח את הישגי קהילת יהודי רומניה בישראל ותרומתם למדינה.
במה זו התמקדה בתרומת יהדות רומניה למדינת ישראל בתחומי התרבות והתקשורת.

One Day / Israel

On a journey in the Middle East, brothers Robert and Adam Kolodny (from the Brooklyn based production explored the diverse adventure that is the State of Israel and the region it exists in. They went with a group then later went off backpacking, staying with friends they met along the journey and at hostels. This is the document of what was observed on this journey through one of the most complex, misunderstood, important and beautiful places in the world. This film is a message of hope and equality.
Shot on location in Jerusalem, The West Bank, Haifa, The Negev, Tel Aviv, Nazareth, Tiberias, Netanya, Golan Heights, Tsfat and Hebron.


There’s so much more to 21st century Israel than the conflict that dominates media coverage.
The reality of daily life in Israel is about commerce and research; art and culture; music and dance; community and family. Through ISRAEL21c’s original and aggregated content, we hope to convey this vibrancy to you.

The Synagogue Experience: Beth Sholom Synagogue

The Synagogue Experience is a series of thirteen documentary shorts that immerse visitors in post-World War II synagogue architecture, a period of great diversity and inspiration as American Jews began to express themselves through the construction of monumental synagogue edifices. Featuring breathtaking timelapse photography and interviews with synagogue congregants and clergy, the films delve into the meaning and symbolism of the unparalleled architectural work of such esteemed architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Percival Goodman, William Harrison and Max Abramovitz, and Minoru Yamasaki. Beyond the architecture, the films also reveal how the distinct characteristics of Jewish communities from New York to Texas to California manifested in the diverse architectural expression evident in the films. An interactive touchscreen in the gallery allows visitors select the film they would like to see projected.
