Yiddish culture gave us not just Woody Allen and Seinfeld but was once an integral part of Europe and the Yiddish Summer Weimar has a month of activities to keep the old traditions alive. There’s also a festival week at the beginning of August where you’ll hear some great klezmer music.

The organizers say:

Yiddish Summer Weimar is delighted to host the Klezmer Institute and its Kiselgof-Makonovetsky Digital Manuscript Project in 2021!

Be there when this extraordinary musical material is presented and played for the first time in over 100 years.

All of our workshops and public events this year will be closely connected to this rare archival material!

All workshops in 2021 will take place outdoors, as in 2020.”
