I was looking to let people know about a special event that is happening this Tuesday at the Hebrew Union College and I was scrolling down the address list and realized there are so many people that I’d love to hear this, but also need to connect with and would like to –-

The Folksbiene , in addition to the various shows we are presenting this month, is presenting a staged concert version of Abraham Goldfadens Bar Kokhba, an operetta not heard in America in over 80 years, and was the operetta that was the cause of the Czarist Goverments banning of Yiddish Theater in Russia in 1883.

We’ve put together a wonderful ensemble of singers and actors, and the music is glorious.

For those of you Boiberikaner, you’ll hear Gekumen iz Di Tsayt in its original format.

Hope you can make this Tuesday’s performance of Bar Kokhba at Hebrew Union College at 7pm-
