**ticket info below**

A Besere Velt (A Better World) Boston Workmen's Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice's Yiddish Community Chorus, conducted by Derek David, is an intergenerational Yiddish chorus that weaves the heartache and irrepressible idealism of Yiddish folk music into a vision of justice and humanity for the 21st century. 

From haunting melodies to workers’ anthems, the songs come alive with multi-layered harmonies. A Besere Velt's repertoire grew out of the shtetls, the sweatshops and union meetings, the camps and ghettos. These songs contain the sounds of the history, the culture, and the progressive values that have influenced generations and continue to inspire us today.

This event is generously co-Sponsored by: The Workmen's CircleJewish Currents, and Camp Kinderland.
