In this episode of The Book of Life, a show about Jewish people and the books we read, we celebrate klezmer music!

> We visit the
Judaica Sound Archives at Florida Atlantic University and hear some of their historic klezmer samples.

> We talk to
Joan Betty Stuchner, author of the picture book The Kugel Valley Klezmer Band (also known in Canada as Shira's Hanukkah Gift).

> We meet
Yale Strom, a "one man klezmer industry," who tells us about his books, films, travels, and performances, all relating to klezmer music. 

Don't forget to inscribe yourself in The Book of Life's High Holidays "Book of Life!" Shanah Tovah!

Background music is provided by The Freilachmakers Klezmer String Band.

Books and CD's mentioned on the show may be borrowed from the
Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel
