Co-sponsored by the American Society for Jewish Music and the American Jewish Historical Society, in conjunction the Museum of Yiddish Theater, YIVO and the Manhattan Jewish Historical Initiative, this years Chanukah Concert is a celebration of Brooklyn-born Yosl Papirovsky (Joseph Papp 1921-1991) whose life and faith showed that miracles are not just a part of our past, but can be an ever-present part of today, and our future. In the spirit of creating light in the world, Papp brought us an enduring cultural legacy: Shakespeare in the Park, the Public Theater, and his own rediscovery of the joy of Yiddish.

Joe Papps story is a special one  a modern miracle. The concert will celebrate his Jewish life and career and will honor the founders of the Joseph Papp Yiddish Theatre: Gail Merrifield Papp, Rena Berkowitz Borow, and Professor Miriam Hoffman.
