What does KlezCalifornia do?
  • We inform people about our own events and events produced by others.
  • We produce events of many kinds: performances, workshops, jams.
  • We link people with teachers, bands, classes, and each other.
  • We teach about Yiddish culture to kids and adults.
  • We support artists by generating larger audiences for their events and by providing fiscal-sponsorship services.
  • We build inter-generational community.
  • We celebrate Yiddish culture in many ways and settings.
KlezCalifornia Events are for musicians and non-musicians, Yiddish speakers and those who know only a few words of mameloshn ("the mother tongue"), and anyone of any age who enjoys or wants to learn about Yiddish culture.
