This is how many events we put on this year. Classes, exhibits, workshops and of course many Yiddish concerts featuring new compositions, as well as traditional klezmer and cabarets with artists of renown and budding talents from Israel and abroad.
This year, YUNG YiDiSH has attracted more than 14000 people and we are still going strong. Daily. You can read more details about our events here.
Volunteers of all walks of life put in lots of working hours to make YUNG YiDiSH possible. This dedication is what makes our work possible. It's our heart beat.
Many of our volunteering crew members perform for free to keep the heart beat going.
We are ready to take of our pockets too when we can.
This year we have clocked up
an astonishing 1650 volunteer hours.
But we cannot make it on our own and we ask you to join.
With all the volunteer work we do, this is the number of days a year YUNG YiDiSH would be able to stay open if we relied only on institutional support. This takes the form of financial support for specific concerts, classes or cultural events. We thank the Yiddish Comittee at the Ministry of Culture or Beth Shalom Aleikhem in Israel and some other institutions like the Mental Insight Foundation.
This means that without additional income from friends and supporters YUNG YiDiSH cannot live, let alone thrive.
This is how many days YUNG YiDiSH has currently funds to survive. We need 350 shekels or 100 USD each day to survive.
This allows us to pay the rent, the water and electricity bills and keep our premises open for visitors with the help of volunteers. It allows us to maintain our book collection at its current level. It means we don't have to close down. So, a modest meal a day. Nothing more, nothing less.
Why not team up with friends or family and donate 350 shekels or USD100 to help YUNG YiDiSH stay open for a day. You can choose the day of the year and your name will be listed on our daily calendar and mentioned at our events on the day! DONATE HERE
This is how many days YUNG YiDiSH has currently to thrive. When we have 700 shekels or 200 dollars a day then we can afford to make worthwhile events, allow artists ponder and experiment, lead classes and workshops, create ways to transmit the knowledge which nests in those books we have gathered. To spend our energy on igniting the youth, and in responding to the quests of the curious. To catalogue the books, to absorb ourselves in creating in depths exhibits of the myriads aspects of this 1000 year old culture we want to celebrate.
So, let's make a yontev of culture. Vi mer, vi beser.
