About our Fundraiser

As part of our annual fundraiser and YAAANA’s fourth anniversary celebrations, we are excited to announce the performance of a new Zoom play Korone un der nayer normal (Corona and the New ‘Normal’), inspired by Leah K. Hoffman’s 1930 Kraft (Power). The play was adapted collaboratively last summer. See Yiddish STARS in action – Avi Hoffman starring as Corona, Suzanne Toren as the Internet, Sam Guncler as The Essential Worker, Bertolt Karsten Troyke as Twitter, Mikhl Yashinsky as Facebook, Lea Kalisch as Instagram, Moishele Mario Alfonso as Madame Netflix, and Lea Rozenfeld as Baby Tiktok. The performance will be followed by a premiere of the 3D animation of the Yiddishland California project by Kendal Eastwood, featuring a brand new song by Psoy Korolenko. Don’t miss YAAANA’s most important event of the year!

The Script was adapted during Yidish vokh, “Yiddish Week” 2020, by Jana Mazurkiewicz, Pam Singer, Stephen Ogin, Sasha Hoffman, Elena Ita Luchina, Suzanne Katchko, German Bernate Obando, and Tanya Yakovleva. It was subtitled into English in collaboration with Beth Dworskin.

Cost: $36 per ticket
