We've read that people interested in Yiddish culture - even KlezCalifornia members like you -- are more likely to donate to a hospital, school or synagogue, so we want to get you in the mood:
Support a hospital? KlezCalifornia revives your soul with music, dance, language and literature, with learning and inter-generational experiences. The best health care!
Support a college? KlezCalifornia presents and publicizes programs with great teachers, who help you explore East European Jewish culture. We have "departments" of language, history, literature, music, dance, and ethnomusicology!
Support youth education? There's a lively Youth Program at each of our Festivals!
Support a shul? At our singing events, you can learn traditional religious songs in Yiddish or secular ones. Either way, you'll feel closer to Jewish tradition!
KlezCalifornia celebrates Yiddish culture -- our heritage of arts, language, literature and customs developed over 1,000 years of thriving Jewish community life across Eastern Europe. Since 2003, KlezCalifornia has produced hundreds of sing-alongs, dance parties, conversation salons and lectures; and published a Bay Area resource guide and Yiddish songbook. We've presented ten fantastic excursions to Yiddishland at our Yiddish Culture Festivals. Hold the date (October 26-27, 2013) for the next Festival, at The Magnes in Berkeley.
Between now and then, we'll give you the details of a hundred other events in our lively newsletter, sent to more than 1,800 KlezCalifornia members (that includes you!).
Your joyful participation and financial support are essential to keeping our community thriving and growing, with more and more dance parties, sing-alongs, lectures, workshops and master classes every year. May we count on your (tax-deductible) donation?
