"Jewish writers, actors, rebels and bards challenged 19th c. tradition, campaigning for education and freedom of expression. Velvel Zbarzher sang, argued and joked his way from Ukrainian shtetl to Constantinople. Culiner follows this extraordinary man to better know him, the Jewish Renaissance, and to find a vanished way of life.

Artist, writer, and photographer, Jill Culiner was born in New York and raised in Toronto. Her publications, among others, include: “Finding Home in the Footsteps of the Jewish Fusgeyers.” Sumach Press, winner of the Joseph and Faye Tanenbaum Prize for Canadian Jewish History, 2005."

The lecture will be recorded and available for viewing on the Workmen's Circle website 24 hours after the presentation.

This lecture is in English and is free to attend. Registration is required by Friday January 21st. Link: https://tinyurl.com/wcarto5/
