Yale Strom, A Champion for Klezmer

Jewish Heritage Month 2013 Honoree

May 1, 2013
By Monica Medina

Listen to klezmer music and it will harken you back to another time. Rich with tradition, the haunting melodies are a testament to the Jewish people and all they’ve endured throughout the course of history. To me, klezmer has the capacity to reach into our hearts and stir us to feel its beauty and soul.
