Original Yiddish Children's Songs by Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman

"THE SONGS CAPTURE THE BEAUTY AND JOY OF YIDDISH CULTURE"
"SING OUT" magazine, Fall, 2007

These original Yiddish children's songs were composed by the poet and composer Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman in the 1960s and 1970s, mainly for the Yiddish folkshuln in NYC and recorded with the best New York Yiddish singers and klezmer musicians in the spring of 2006. Two songs were recorded by the vocal ensemble at the 2005 St. Petersburg Klezfest in Russia.

Arranged by Jeanette Lewicky, Binyumin Schaechter and Lorin Sklamberg this is the first recording in history comprised solely of original Yiddish children's songs from one composer. Some songs relate to Jewish holidays, some to the seasons and others to children‘s fantasies.

Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman grew up in Chernovitz, Romania, and came to the US in 1951. She has lived in the Bronx since then. In 2005 she was awarded the National Heritage Fellowship by the NEA in Washington. The first time a Yiddish poet and composer was so honored.
A book with the words and music are available from Yiddishlandrecords.com

Louisa

Great Cd
I love this cd!! Its one of the most dynamic and creative yiddish albums produced in a long time. Its clear that a lot of love and care went into the writing and production of these tunes. Buy these cd for the children and adults in your lives!

Buy it Now!
I bought this Cd at the 92nd Y concert for my grandchildren. Before giving it to them I just had to sneak a listen. Three hours later- I bought another cd for my grandchildren because I just had to have one for myself! This cd is full of some much joy and SO much talent. Beyle once again proves herself to be our greatest living yiddish poet and songwriter. Consider it an absolute must.
