Camp Kinderland is proud to co-sponsor Sing Out, Fight Back! A Besere Velte (A Better World) Chorus Concert at Yiddish New York | Inspired by the 75th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Town and Village Synagogue, 334 East 14th Street, New York City


A Besere Velt (A Better World), Boston Workmen’s Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice’s Yiddish Community Chorus, conducted by Derek David, is an intergenerational Yiddish chorus that weaves the heartache and irrepressible idealism of Yiddish folk music into a vision of justice and humanity for the 21st century. From haunting melodies to workers’ anthems, the songs come alive with multi-layered harmonies. A Besere Velt’s repertoire grew out of the shtetls, the sweatshops and union meetings, the camps and ghettos. These songs contain the sounds of the history, the culture, and the progressive values that have influenced generations and continue to inspire us today.

This event is co-Sponsored by: The Workmen’s Circle, Jewish Currents, and Camp Kinderland.
