  3. Yiddish: A tale of survival, a documentary created by first time Montreal filmmaker, Abigail Hirsch, will have its world premiere at the New York City International Film Festival Gala on June 18th, 2013.

    Inspired by the Montreal International Yiddish Theatre Festival, the filmmaker explores via intimate interviews and theatre clips how theatre has been used to keep the rich vernacular of Yiddish alive in Montreal, Israel, and Europe. The intimate stories of three individuals of three generations, illuminates how art can be both political and revolutionary. The first is Shmulik Atzmon, a Polish born, Israeli actor who, at the age of fifty, created the first Yiddish Theatre troupe in Israel. The other two characters are Bryna Wasserman, the legendary Artistic Director of the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre in Montreal and Milena Kartowsky, a twenty-three year old Yiddish singer and activist from Paris. These are the three principal characters in this narrative feature.

  5. Rabbi

    A lecture given by the late Rabbi Lew, Rabbi, author and Zen Roshi, Z"L at Stanford Hillel in February 2008.

    I was visiting Palo Alto and extended my trip in order to attend this lecture and I am so glad I did. Rabbi Lew passed away suddenly the following summer. He had a great heart and a great soul.
