Announcing the Stonehill Jewish Song Collection!
If you’ve been enjoying the regular postings here on the Yiddish Song of the Week, we invite you to visit a new website created by Center for Traditional Music and Dance and Yiddish scholar Miriam Isaacs. The Stonehill Jewish Song Collection website has been recently launched with over sixty songs, mainly in Yiddish, that were collected by Ben Stonehill in 1948 from D.P. camp refugees who were being temporarily housed at the Hotel Marseilles in Manhattan. It is our plan to eventually disseminate the entire Stonehill collection – over 1000 songs on the new website.
