Friends of Yiddish features McGill University’s delightful lecturer and tuneful Yiddishist, Janie Respitz . She describes Sholem Aleichem’s wonderfully nostalgic stories set in our grandparents’ old Yiddish shtetls.
She interprets and sings many folkloric tales that evoke the lives of Tevye and the colourful characters of the author’s Anatevka as dramatized in “Fiddler on the Roof.”
