Yiddish Musical Revue at WRT

Westchester Reform Temple will host a musical theater afternoon on Sunday, March 7 at 4 p.m. The program, “Mama’s Loshn Kugel,” is a traveling Yiddish revue featuring classic songs and sketches from the Folksbiene Yiddish Theater.

Performed in Yiddish with English translation supertitles, the performance is easy to follow and suitable for both children and adults. As its name implies, “Mama’s Loshn Kugel” is a veritable Yiddish kugel, or pudding, with a mixture of humor and song, longing and celebration.

Theater critic Howard Shapiro of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote of a recent production: “The jokes were flying. The music was piping. The translations were beaming.”

The Folksbiene Yiddish Theater is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, promote and develop Yiddish theater for current and future generations to enhance the understanding and appreciation of Yiddish culture as a necessary component of Jewish life.

This Yiddish Culture Program is funded by the Cantor Stephen H. Merkel Fund, and is free and open to the public. Westchester Reform Temple is located at 255 Mamaroneck Road in Scarsdale, N.Y. For directions or information, call the Temple at 914-723-7727, email office@wrtemple.org, or visit www.wrtemple.org.
