The story of Jewish life in Eastern Europe brought to life by some of the last remaining eyewitnesses. Accompanied by archival films, vintage photographs and traditional cantorial music, the film takes a realistic and enlightening look at this unique and all but vanished way of life. Rural communities often had no running water or electricity. Anti-Semitism was a part of daily life. Crowded conditions and poverty seemed to prevail but through the eyes of the individuals interviewed, Jewish communities were close-knit and often joyous places to live.

While klezmer music has enjoyed a revival in the late 20th century, Yiddish popular song seemed destined to vanish altogether. But efforts by Mandy Patinkin and Chava Alberstein attempt to breathe new life into the old tradition. This disc of well-selected songs attempts to paint a portrait of village life for Eastern European Jews in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. But besides the charming tunes, Alberstein's rich delivery really brings the tunes to life. There is a nice combination of emotion, sensuality and humor to her delivery that makes the songs consistently intriguing. Even without understanding the words, her interpretation invests the tunes with character.

Different from the mystical Sephardic “Voices of Israel” and our cross-over to the Yemenite style, “Yiddish” brings a more Jewish-European oriented style which found its roots in the high-german and Ashkenazi language.

Writers have celebrated the fruitful dialogue between English and Yiddish for decades.
