The Bent Tree
This charming fable, presented through Sally Heckel's sand animation, is based on Itzik Manger's bittersweet Yiddish folk tune "Oyfn Veg Shteyt A Boym."  The story, sung in Yiddish by Josh Waletzky, tells of a small child whose mother tries to prevent her from discovering her surroundings and flying like a bird. For young and old!

"A beautiful, sensitively crafted work."-Young Viewers

TWO FILMS BY JOSH WALETZKY & BINYUMEN SCHAECHTER

NEW!
When Our Bubbas and Zeydas Were Young
The Schaechter Sisters on Stage

Attracting a new generation to Yiddish song, the dynamic Schaechter Sisters brings to life the youth of our grandparents in Eastern Europe, as well as upon arrival in America. Through a potpourri of characters from the Yiddish songbook, featuring great Yiddish composers and writers, such as Sholem Aleichem, Itsik Manger and Mordecai Gebirtig, they inspire us with themes that are universal and contemporary, such as young love, family relationships and class struggle.
