The Yiddish Song of the Week is a blog presented by the Center for Traditional Music and Dance’s An-sky Jewish Folklore Research Project (AJFRP). This initiative is part of a larger effort by the AJFRP to revitalize traditional Yiddish folksinging performance and research on the subject. The website emphasizes field recordings of traditional Yiddish folksingers from around the world contributed by folklorists, ethnomusicologists, musicians, singers and collectors.
Each Yiddish song is presented with Yiddish words and translation, along with commentary from the contributor.
Itzik Gottesman is the Director of An-sky Jewish Folklore Research Project.
