And now for something completely different ...
Having experienced emigration at a young age, I often long for that feeling of coming back to the town where I was born; walking the streets I used to walk to school and back, to the local stores and the stadium and back, and finally to the city's central train junction (but not back, yet). Having matured to appreciate the answer to the question of "why?", there probably couldn't have been a more appropriate time of the year for last night's event to occur. This Sunday's performance at this year's festival at The Millenium Theater really comes close to getting me "there". Warning: knowledge of Yiddish and Russian is helpful.
Huge thanks, Mom (sings), Dad (lyrics), and, naturally, Mr. Boris Berlin (composer and pianist).
