About the An-sky Jewish Folklore Research Project

The Yiddish Song of the Week is presented by the An-sky Jewish Folklore Research Project.  Centered in New York City and collaborating with researchers internationally, the Project works to research and revitalize the practice of traditional Jewish arts. The Project was founded as part of the Center for Traditional Music and Dance and the SHolem Aleichem Cultural Center’s An-sky Institute for Jewish Culture.

The Yiddish Song of the Week is edited by Itzik Gottesman, Ph.D.
