Festivals, Folklore & Philosophy
A Secularist Revisits Jewish Traditions

festivalsOver 50 essays with a Secular Jewish perspective on Jewish traditions by scholar Max Rosenfeld, a Yiddish translator and lecturer on Yiddish culture, who translated more than 25 books, including four by Yiddish poets. He was a founder of the Sholom Aleichem Club.

300 pages divided into
three sections:
I. JEWISH HOLIDAYS REVISITED
II. JEWISH FOLKLORE
AND FOLK HEROES
From Biblical Lore
to Yiddish Sayings and Tales
III. THE UNFOLDING
SECULAR JEWISH IDEA
max

Our mythology has been part of Jewish literacy for centuries. Secular Jewish culture in Yiddish took over that mythology and made it part of everyday speech, and you did not have to be a Talmudic scholar to use it.

Excerpt from the book











New Yorkish and Other
American Yiddish Stories

20 Stories -- 15 Authors
newyork Translated by Max Rosenfeld

???Thanks to the work of editor-translator Max Rosenfeld and the Sholom Aleichem Club of Philadelphia, who published this attractive paperbound volume, readers unable to read Yiddish in the original now have access to a remarkable body of American Yiddish literature. This book fills an important gap in available Jewish works in English. With a few notable exceptions, we have, until now, missed most of the fine prose writers who wrote in America, about America and who wrote it all
in Yiddish.???

Mayn Oytser-My Treasure.
Sherm Labovitz Sings Gems of Yiddish Art and Folk Songs

Mayn Oytser-My Treasure. Sherm Labovitz Sings Gems of Yiddish Art and Folk Songs. The CD and cassette versions are 12 (plus 3 shipping/handling, 0.50 for each additional item.) Long-time Club member Sherm Labovitz sings 23 carefully selected songs, drawn from familiar and unfamiliar sources - traditional folk songs, songs from the Soviet Union, songs from Second Avenue (NY) theaters, songs written recently. Alexander (Sender) Botwinik arranged the songs and accompanied Sherm on the piano. Marvin Weinberger accompanies on the violin on several songs.

In an attempt to avoid the common minuscule type found with many CDs, the Publications Committee of the Club decided to print a full-size booklet. Each recording, cassette or CD, is accompanied by the booklet, which includes short biographies of the creators of the CD and the full Yiddish text (in transliteration) with a line-by-line translation of every song. Original liner notes by Bob Freedman and Labovitz are printed for each song.

The cover was designed by Ruthie Rosenfeld, artist for the Clubs award-winning Haggadah for a Secular Celebration of Pesach (and the daughter of Jack and Sylvia Rosenfeld). The booklet was prepared by Larry Schofer. Larry and Jack Rosenfeld served as executive producers of the entire project. For orders, contact Larry at 215.248.3762.
