Into the Freylakh

 

continued

Freylakh, in Yiddish, means "joy." Into the Freylakh, whatever it's playing, dives into that joy and invites you to join. The New York subways used to have bakery ads that read, "You don't have to be Jewish to love Levy's," and you don't have to speak a word of Yiddish, or have grandparents from Galicia, to be moved by this music.

Avant Tuesdays have been discontinued at the Firefly, but you can hear Into The Freylakh there on Thursday, March 6.    (end of article)
