Children of all ages are invited to join for sing-alongs led by Eléonore Biezunski with Zoe Christiansen, storytelling by Shane Baker, and a Yiddish puppet show "Lyzer the Miser" based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer by the same name performed by Great Small Works members John Bell and Trudi Cohen.

Activities will take place from 11:00am until 1:00pm throughout the Center for Jewish History.

The Klezmographers play in Brooklyn
Since their first concert in Brooklyn in 2006, Eleonore Biezunski (violin, vocals) and Pete Rushefsky (tsimbl) have teamed up to explore the richness of traditional klezmer and Yiddish folksong. The duo performs rare repertoire from 19th and early 20th century collections of Jewish folklore as well as original klezmer tunes.
