Research Rediscovering Yiddish New York #usa #yiddish

Jeff Feinberg

My friend Henry Sapoznik, notable historian on Yiddish music and culture- see attached website- is writing a new guidebook Rediscovering Yiddish New York (SUNY Excelsior Press).

He is looking for information concerning which Jewish cemeteries in New York City catered to which particular sub-communities (For example, Mt. Hebron: theater and musicians,

Washington: early theater, writers, Wellwood: Orthodox rabbis, etc.) What are others? Who are notable interees? 

Perhaps our members may have knowledge or leads.
