Dear Friends,

YAAANA is excited to announce our new project: Yiddish Theater Academy.

Yiddish Theater Academy offers a platform for actors, producers, directors, and theater enthusiasts to discover, preserve, and advance the rich heritage of Yiddish theater through classes, cultural events, and local and international performances.

Inaugural activities include an interactive interview with world-renowned producer and actor Mike Burstyn. A Broadway star, Mike will regale us with tales about his upbringing and exciting career.

Additionally, we are organizing "Sha un shtil! A New Yiddish Theater Experiment." This innovative Yiddish theater class series intends to build a bridge between the academic and the artistic worlds and will feature Itzik Manger's "Megile lider." Giving students the opportunity to learn from the experts, our program will host special guests such as Avi Hoffman, Yelena Shmulenson, Eleanor Reissa, and Uri Schreter. Please consider donating to support this groundbreaking initiative. And please tut undz a toyve (do us a favor) and share this campaign with your friends, acquaintances, and mishpokhe.

A groysn dank! (Many thanks!),

The YAAANA team
