Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes This entirely Yiddish version of the musical comedy takes the story of Purim and adds a happy new twist in the person of Itzik Manger, a tailor and poet. The action takes place in a small town in Eastern Europe at the turn of the 20th century and all the characters alternatively live their lives and sing their songs and poems with one foot in the Bible and the other in the shtetl.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
