Hosted by the Yiddishkayt Initiative in honor of Joseph Papp, famed Broadway impresario and founder of the NY Shakespeare Festival and the Public Theatre, this nine-day celebration of Yiddish Theatre and Jewish Culture will include performances and presentations by the most highly acclaimed personalities in the world of Yiddishkayt.
From theatrical presentations, Klezmer concerts, film screenings, lectures and panel discussions, the world of Yiddish Theatre, which thrived on the Lower East Side beginning in the 1890’s, will be restored to its original home. In alliance with Yiddish New York, YIVO Institute for Jewish Research and many other esteemed New York Cultural institutions, this festival will coincide with the Hanukkah holiday of Light and Miracles.
Yiddishkayt Initiative is offering numerous underwriting and sponsorship opportunities for the YI Love Yiddishfest, from full naming rights to advertising in our Yiddishfest Program.
