 A day of free events for all ages

 11am TALK - David Mazower: “The Lodz Masterpieces: 3 Jewish Women’s Art Books Revealed”

Yiddish Book Center Bibliographer David Mazower reveals the story behind three exquisite limited-edition art books. Published in Lodz in 1921, they were hand-colored by Ida Broyner, Ester Karp and Dina Matus - a trio of young Jewish women artists fresh out of art school and today all but unknown.

 11:30am-1pm | Yiddish Print Shop demonstration

 12:15pm | Tour of the Yiddish Book Center

 2pm CONCERT - Litvakus

New York Belarusian Jewish roots/HIP/acoustic punk klezmer

The Litvakus repertoire is a mix of traditional Belarusian and Litvak (Belarusian Jewish) folk music, as well as contemporary pieces written in the spirit of roots music.

 All events are free and open to the public. For a full schedule of events and more information:
