Join Veeblefetzer/The Wesleyan Klezmer Band for an afternoon of toe-tappin’ tunes and endless dancing!

Come dance your tukhes off before all the mishegas even begins in a dance workshop with world famous Yiddish dance leader Steve Weintraub!

2:30 – 3:30 KLEZMER CONCERT
We’ll play a lively 45 minute dance set, with dancing led by Steve (all levels welcome!) And if that’s not enough musical madness for you, there’s more! You’ll learn to sing a well known Chanukah song… in Yiddish. You’ll witness two violins played simultaneously. There will also be a special appearance by the Mixolydians singing an old Yiddish theater song. Refreshments provided.

Film Series: The Palm Beach Story

1942. USA. Dir: Preston Sturges. With Claudette Colbert, Joel McCrea. 88 min.

Convinced that the way to support hubby’s career is to divorce him and marry a richer man, a concerned wife flees for Florida. Strange rich people, some guy called “The Weenie King,” and a trainload of gun-wielding elderly drunks await en route to an irresistibly implausible screwball comedy finale.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
