    Episode 44: Irena Klepfisz | אירינע קלעפּפֿיש (English/Yiddish)

    In this special Yiddish-English mixed episode, Sandra Chiritescu sits down with Irena Klepfisz to discuss her life journey, ranging from her relationship to Yiddish, to her poetry, scholarship, and her activism vis-a-vis the Middle East. Irena has translated Yiddish authors such as Kadya Molodowsky and Fradl Shtok, and is a long-time lesbian feminist activist. We’re super thankful to Irena for talking to Vaybertaytsh, and for Sandra for conducting what we hope will be the first of many episodes!

    Episode 42: רײזל זילבערמאַן | Reyzl Zylberman

    Sosye had a great time talking to her new Aussie khaverte Reyzl Zylberman! Our attempts to record in person were thwarted twice by sound problems, but we finally got to talk “on the record” on the phone a few weeks later. We chatted about her understanding of Bundism today, being a Yiddish teacher with kids of all ages, and her job as a Multicultural Ambassador for the Australian Football League! Reyzl is pretty badass, and we think you’ll love her as much as we do. Thanks Reyzl for talking with us and for being such a great host in Melbourne!
