The "Singer's Warsaw" Festival of Jewish Culture

Warsaw will be coming alive to klezmer concerts, cantor singing, exhibitions, films and plays Sept. 6 to 14 when Próżna Street and the area around the Nożyk Synagogue don their prewar Jewish-quarter appearance for this year's "Singer's Warsaw" Festival of Jewish Culture.

Tailors workshops, smithies, bookstores, Jewish restaurants and coffee shops will be making their way back to the area and you will be able to hear many of the foreign visitors chatting among themselves in Yiddish, a once thriving Germanic language that almost became extinct during the Holocaust but which has since bounced back to gain something of a cult status among lovers of Jewish culture.

This is the world that the Nobel Prize-winning Polish-born American author and leading Yiddish literary figure Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902-1991) once inhabited. This is an ideal opportunity to familiarize yourself with Jewish traditions.

Venues include Próżna and Twarda Streets, Grzybowski Square, the Jewish Theater, the Shalom Club, and the Nożyk Synagogue. For further details go to www.festiwalsingera.pl
