Michael Wex and Henry Sapoznik yuck it up at KlezKamp

All three Wexes enjoy nothing better than spending Christmas in a kosher hotel in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York immersing themselves in Yiddish culture.

And now the New York Times has taken an interest.

In the feature article "No Need to Kvetch, Bubala, Yiddish Lives on in Catskills" Joseph Berger highlights the work done by founder Henry Sapoznik to keep Yiddish culture alive by offering over 50 courses taught by experts in the field such as Wex, Adrienne Cooper, Steve Weintraub and Pete Sokolow.
