Today Gesher Theater opens its 22 season with a premier of “The Dybbuk”.
“Dybbuk tells the story of Leah whose soul is demonically possessed by that of her dead sweetheart Hanan, who manifests himself as Leah is about to be wedded to a wealthy man, the choice of her rich merchant father, Sender.
Despite the best efforts of sages and the rabbinical court, the dybbuk will not be appeased and Leah will join him in the other world.”
Here’s a funny JPost blog post, describing Yevgeny Arye rehearsing with the troupe. “…Arye chain-smokes, curses in Russian (something about one’s mother) and shouts a rapid-fire “Stop!Stop!” into a microphone when things go wrong…“

Check out collection of archival images on Jewish life. Including early Soviet and other children books; vintage illustrations with a cool set for Gustav Meyrinks’ “Golem” published in Germany in 1916; cute scraps and greeting cards; artwork, like this picture of Brooklyn Bridge from 1922 and hundreds of photos. This one is my favorite.

NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s will offer a unique grouping of works by the ‘Society of Independent Artists,’ or ‘Odessan Parisians,’ as one critic called them—an avant-garde group of Ukrainian artists who painted in the early years of the twentieth century. Eighty-six works will be offered as a single lot in the Russian Art auction on 22 April 2010 in New York. The collection was compiled by Yakov Pereman, a patron of the arts in Southern Ukraine (then Russia) who moved to Palestine in 1919, taking his art with him. After a series highly publicized exhibitions in the 1920s and a memorial exhibition in 1960-61, the collection was not seen again in public for over 40 years, when select works were exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2002. The paintings have not been seen in Ukraine since Pereman left. The collection is estimated to fetch $1.5/2 million. read more
