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 These beautiful Yiddish songs are surprisingly performed in Hebrew. The title song, Kinder Yorn, (Childhood Years), a favorite Yiddish reminiscence, is extended from the original Yiddish into Hebrew. Thank you 'Dudu' Fisher for a wonderfully unique recording.

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.

If a song listed below has not been digitized yet, it will NOT show up within the player. If you need us to digitize this song/album, you can make a formal request here.
