YIDSTOCK CONCERT | Cantor Yaakov Lemmer

Join the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA for a concert by Cantor Yaakov Lemmer. This concert is part of our annual Yidstock: The Festival of New Yiddish Music, July 7-10.

Yaakov Yanky Lemmer was born and raised in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, where many of the great cantors of the Golden Age used to sing. His earliest performances took place in the Beth El synagogue. With an ensemble led by Frank London of the Klezmatics, Yaakov brings fresh interpretations to traditional liturgical prayers and Hasidic nigunim, as well as to some more obscure Yiddish songs. This will be Yaakov’s Yidstock debut.
