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.He also notes that second and third generations of kampers now teach and attend KlezKamp, mentioning Mrs. Wex’s partner in crime and co-director of the children’s program, Sarah Gordon (daughter of Adrienne Cooper).
There is still time to register for this incredibly rich, super-fun festival. Go to the Living Traditions website and sign up today.
The friends you make at Kamp are friends for life.
