Calypso a la Yiddish

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We will learn a wonderfully catchy song “Calypso a la Yiddish” by Michael Fox (from a recording by Zalman Mlotek, Artistic Director of the National Yiddish Theater-Folkbiene) that teaches counting to ten in Yiddish accompanied by wacky English verses. Simple musical instruments will be available for the kids to join the irresistible beat, and two songs that some Shir Chadash kids know (the Yiddish stomachache song and head, shoulders, knee and feet song) will be retaught.

Designed for  3 ½- to 10- year-old children, but parents are welcome to listen and learn.
