Writing in Tongues examines the complexities of translating Yiddish literature at a time when the Yiddish language is in decline. After the Holocaust, Soviet repression, and American assimilation, the survival of traditional Yiddish literature depends on translation, yet a few Yiddish classics have been translated repeatedly while many others have been ignored. Anita Norich traces historical and aesthetic shifts through versions of these canonical texts, and she argues that these works and their translations form an enlightening conversation about Jewish history and identity.

Here is the remarkable story of how this humble language took vigorous root in Eastern European shtetls and in the Jewish quarters of cities across Europe; how it achieved a rich literary flowering between the wars in Europe and America; how it was rejected by emancipated Jews; and how it fell victim to the Holocaust. And also how, in yet another twist of destiny, Yiddish today is becoming the darling of academia.Yiddish is a history as story; a tale of flesh-and-blood people with manic humor.

Yiddish, the language of Ashkenazic Jewry, arose some 900-1200 years ago as a result of contact with indigenous varieties of medieval German. Over the next few centuries, it grew to cover the second-largest language area in Europe, with Yiddish-speaking colonies being created in North and South America, Palestine/Israel, Australia and South Africa. It is estimated that just before the Nazi genocide in World War II, there were between 11 and 13 million Yiddish speakers worldwide. …

Part of a British revival of Yiddish culture, Hilda Bronstein's collection of Yiddish songs are to some degree what one would expect from a basic troupe performing at cultural and folk festivals. At the same time, however, the band (led by Merlin Shepherd) provides a good backing sound ranging from somber to joyous, but Bronstein herself is the star of the show, with a deep, throaty (almost Marlene Dietrich-like in some respects) intonation. The Polish dialect of Yiddish doesn't always lend itself to pretty pastoral sounds of course, but it seems that Bronstein is pushing the envelope even further than needed. Along with Merlin Shepherd's clarinet, the mix of old and new compositions is probably the key highlight of this recording. A handful of songs hearken back to the great Yiddish poets, a handful are from the theater era and immigration to America, a couple are from the wartime era and the partisan movements, and a couple of newer compositions make their debut as well.

Insanitizers music is all about fun, for all ages. It takes listeners on involving adventures with frenetic energy, tension, mystery, and drama. Most recent recordings use “clean and chimey but silky” guitar tones, but there is plenty of variation between songs. You can hear influences from classical, surf, flamenco, rockabilly, and punk styles. In July 2016 “Guitar Fun” won the national award for “Best Rock Instrumental Album.” “Insanitizers deploy their marvelous talent for the guitar to the interpretation of a modern vibe – what results is a completely novel experience of a genre you thought you knew and understood.”
