Founded in 1985 and still run today by ethnomusicologist and award-winning record and radio producer Henry Sapoznik, the program creates an innovative and intensive environment where senior practitioners of the Yiddish folk arts—klezmer music, Yiddish song, Yiddish language, literature and poetry, the culinary and visual arts—pass on their life skills to newer generations.
Formerly held every December at the Hudson Valley Resort, a hotel in New York's Catskill region, and now held at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, NY (also in the Catskills), it attracts people from around the world to study with a veritable "Who's Who" of contemporary Yiddish life and culture.
