A Bintel Brief
9 December 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join us for a dramatic reading of letters and Yiddish music. Long before “Ask Ann Landers” and “Dear Abby,” there was A Bintel Brief, the Jewish Forward’s legendary advice column launched in 1906 by editor, Abraham Cahan.
This popular column helped waves of Yiddish-speaking immigrants find their footing in 20th century American life. Featuring the talents of Saul Caplan, Stacy Emoff, Jon Horwitz, Beverly Horwitz, and Meredith Levinson with musical selections and accompaniment by Richard Prigozen. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 937.496.0050. Dessert reception follows.
