Soil and Shul in the Berkshires: Untold Story of Sandisfield's Jewish Colony by Lorraine German with music by Klezmer East


Celebrate the publication of Soil and Shul in the Berkshires as the author Lorraine German speaks about the development of the book and shares some of the stories of the lives of the Jewish farm community in the Berkshires.

Clarinetist Paul Green and keyboard artist/arranger Bob Weiner and their Klezmer group will perform both traditional Klezmer classics from Europe, and more contemporary Jewish pieces from the United States. Green’s group will play 2 musical sets (a half-hour each) with the first set played following Lorraine German's presentation, and the second half-hour set performed after a 20 minute break while people can purchase the new book and the author can sign copies.

Reserve a copy of the book with your pre-order here.
