Dr. Michael Ochs, and noted scholar on Jewish music, Professor Mark Slobin
will present the talk, “Tailoring an Operetta to Its Audience:
Rumshinsky’s Di goldene kale (1923)” at the Center for Jewish History (15 West 16th
Street, NYC) on Friday, February 22, 2013 at 10:30 A.M., in what promises to be an
engaging discussion of the issues surrounding the re-construction and

attendees a meaningful evening based on their past and present experiences.…

The C & RL News, of the Association of College and Research Libraries Reports in the February 2013 issue that two archival repositories have a new innovative project to create translations from historic Yiddish newspapers and journals.
