Storyline

On October 12, 2007 over 100 Klezmer musicians and Yiddish singers gathered on the steps of New York City's Eldridge Street Synagogue for a unique photo shoot. Brought together from all over the world were the most influential Klezmer artists today! Artists ranged from Theodore Bikel to John Zorn. After the photo we had an impromptu march/parade through the streets of the Lower East Side! Onlookers followed along with the curious. It was Yiddish street theatre at its best! Over the next two days participants performed at City University. Our film chronicles this musical weekend, both as a celebration of Klezmer music and Yiddish song as well as the revival of Klezmer as the main soundtrack of Jewish culture today through its pathos and humor.
