With your help, we can do even more.
We have 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 intergenerational experiences. The best health care!
Support a college? KlezCalifornia presents and publicizes programs with great teachers who help you explore East European Jewish culture. Our "curriculum" includes theater, dance, language, history, literature, music, and ethnomusicology! Four hundred people enjoyed our college-level classes at November's Yiddish Culture Festival!
Support youth education? With, "Tam: Tastes of Yiddish Culture for Kids & Teens", we are enriching Jewish education grades K-12 with Yiddish culture, offering programs to Jewish youth in religious schools, day schools, Jewish camps, and more. We are bringing Yiddish culture to where young Jews are!
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!
Because of KlezCalifornia's work since 2003, we all now can enjoy a visible, thriving Yiddish-inspired community in the Bay Area and beyond. Together, we have changed the old paradigms (such as: We are "obligated" to keep Yiddish alive. Yiddish "takes away" from Jewish commitment to Israel and to Hebrew. Except forHasidim,
only secular Jews are interested in Yiddish.) into a new paradigm: Yiddish-inspired culture enhances Jewish life. It brings people together for multi-generational fun and connects the Jewish past and present.YOU,
together with other Contributing Members, are essential to KlezCalifornia's support! KlezCalifornia relies on those with a fondness for klezmer music and Yiddish culture to sustain everything we do. May we count on you for a (tax-deductible) gift right now to keep our community thriving and growing with Yiddish inspiration?
