The New York Klezmer Series (formerly East Village Klezmer Series) has been bringing wonderful Klezmer Music and Yiddish Dance to NYC since 2010. Originally The East Village Klezmer Series, we have a new home in the Upper West Side – at the historic Stephen Wise Free Synagogue – beginning in February 2013. We will present concerts, music and dance workshops and open jam sessions in an intimate and beautiful setting. Founded and curated by Aaron Alexander (at the invitation of Rabbi Greg Wall) and inspired by the week-long Yiddish Culture events, Klez Kamp, and Klez Kanada, the NYKS aspires to present the music in a respectful setting and allow the artists freedom to present their vision. The series consistently presents world class artists in an intimate setting, in addition to providing education and a place for all to come and participate in this wonderful and often neglected part of Jewish and American Culture.
