Summer of 2021
Greetings! We’re in the midst of preparing another open air version of Yiddish Summer Weimar. Between mid-July and Aug 21st, 2021, with the help of the town of Weimar and its beautiful squares and parks, we’re planning another inspiring summer of Yiddish culture, language and music – all outdoors and taking every precaution to avoid the further spread of Covid-19.
Here’s what we know so far:
YIDDISH SUMMER WEIMAR: Mid-July – Aug 21, 2021 with workshops in Yiddish language, instrumental music and song for beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. The exact workshop schedule will be published soon. Official opening at BUGA Erfurt on July 25, 2021.
FESTIVAL WEEK: Aug 3 – Aug 7, 2021 with daily concerts, encounters, mini-workshops, talks, films and more the whole day and half of the night.
YSW GOES THURINGIA: Open-air concerts and more throughout Thuringia in July and August of 2021.
GENERATION J: only one of several projects for young people aged 13 – 30, dedicated to Yiddish and related cultures.
