Best of All Worlds: Tova sings Schaechter-Gottesman at Workman’s Circle

What happens when a pan-cultural jazz cabaret diva sings the songs of the first Yiddish poet to win a National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellowship?

Well Theresa Tova has been getting in some practice with the songs of the Forward’s good friend Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman, so whatever happens should be of a high caliber.

Find out for yourself at 8pm on Thursday November 19 at the old Forward building, 45 East 33rd Street. If it helps you understand what type of evening it’s going to be, there’ll be cocktails at 6:30!

Listen to a lovely song by Beyle (“Geven Amol Iz a Shetl”) that Tova didn’t sing. And below that, watch Theresa Tova below, singing a nice Jewish song that Beyle didn’t write.

A message from our editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren

We're building on 127 years of independent journalism to help you develop deeper connections to what it means to be Jewish today.

With so much at stake for the Jewish people right now — war, rising antisemitism, a high-stakes U.S. presidential election — American Jews depend on the Forward's perspective, integrity and courage.
