Yiddish Art on Stage: Marc Chagall and the Moscow Yiddish Theater

The Midtown Workmen's Circle School kicked off its series of monthly adult programs with a presentation on October 6 by longtime shule teacher Kolya Borodulin on the amazing collaboration between artist Marc Chagall and the Moscow Yiddish Theater in the years 1920-21.

The presentation focused on how Chagall's revolutionary ideas were closely interconnected with his Jewish upbringing and his intimate knowledge and love of Yiddish culture and folklore.
