Sunday, December 9 at 1:00 p.m., a group of Temple Israel members (Beverly Horwitz, Jon Horwitz, Meredith Levinson, Saul Caplan, Stacy Emoff, and Richard Prigozen) will present a dramatic reading of letters and Yiddish musical selections from A Bintel Brief. Long before “Ask Ann Landers” and “Dear Abby,” there was A Bintel Brief, the Jewish Forward’s legendary advice column launched in 1906 by editor, Abraham Cahan. This popular column helped waves of Yiddish-speaking immigrants find their footing in 20th century American life. The event is free, but please RSVP here. A dessert reception will follow the performance.
