Rochester Jewish Book Festival Closing Day Celebration

When: Sun., Oct. 30, 2 p.m. 2022

David Forman makes Jewish folktales come alive through his English translation of The Clever Little Tailor. David’s grandfather, Solomon Simon, storyteller, scholar and author of the popular version of the Wise Men of Helm stories, wrote the clever tailor stories in Yiddish but they were never translated into English until now. Forman will share his journey into the wonderful, expressive world of Yiddish. Come for the stories; stay for Klezmer music by Maury Rosenberg and the New York Klezmer Orchestra. Maybe a little dancing, and, of course, a nosh.

Price: Tickets are $12 for JCC members $15 for non-members
