"What's Not to Like?" - a Yiddish songfest in Durham NC November 6 2016

Many years ago Gary Berman decided to throw a benefit concert for Urban Ministries of Durham: he worked for months preparing a fabulous selection of Yiddish songs arranged for quite a few local singers plus piano and string trio (including viola da gamba).

Gary and Beth Berman have now been doing this concert annually for a long time. World renowned Yiddishist Sheva Zucker is Master of Ceremonies. It's a great cause and if you're local I hope you'll attend. Advance tickets are $15 and now you can buy them in advance via paypal, click here:

(You can also get them in advance by contacting Gary and Beth at

This year the theme is "Work." I'll be singing three songs. Everybody's song lyrics, translated, will be up on the wall so you'll be able to enjoy them all even if you've never heard of Yiddish before!

Concert is 3 pm on Sunday, November 6, 2016, at Beth El Synagogue (1004 Watts Street, Durham NC 27701). Contact the Bermans at 919-682-7468 for more information.
