Opening of Yiddish Summer Weimar 2021 at BUGA Erfurt Yiddish Summer Weimar (YSW) has been a guarantor of great Yiddish music and culture in an intercultural context for over 20 years. As a global learning community, YSW attaches great importance to the social dimension of its project. In 2021, the YSW will move its opening to Erfurt and offer an afternoon with international artists, music, stories, projects, surprise guests and interaction with the audience. The show will include The Wandering Stars Song Project
Patrick Farrell (USA/D) – piano, accordion
Craig Judelman (USA/D) – violin
Sveta Kundish (D) – voice
Sasha Lurje (D) – voice

Under the artistic direction of Dr. Alan Bern, the YSW today stands on four pillars: education, research, presentation and recreation in the field of Yiddish and related cultures. International projects such as the Caravan Orchestra & Choir (with Haifa), the Kadya Youth Choir (with Tel Aviv-Jaffa), the Yiddish operas “Di Megile fun Vaymar”, and “Bas-Sheve” (Paris and Lodz) as well as numerous new productions complement the work of the YSW and carry the reputation of Weimar and Thuringia as a hotspot of Yiddish culture into the world.
