Zalmen Mlotek is the artistic director of The National Yiddish Theater-Folksbiene and as a classical trained conductor has brought Yiddish music to audiences all over the world. 

This website offers information about programs and events Zalmen Mlotek is involved in through the Folksbiene, the New Yiddish Chorale, touring shows including Ghetto Tango and Soul to Soul, and individual concerts and lectures.

The music playing is a song called Amerike hot derklert (America has declared) from Ghetto Tango, a collection of wartime Yiddish theater songs.  This song was written and sung in the Lodz Ghetto during the Holocaust and expresses the joy and hope that came to mind when thinking of immigrating to a Jewish homeland, which had yet to be established.  

Feel free to sign our guestbook, send a message, check out the National Yiddish Theater-Folksbiene website for its current and upcoming activities,  and check in with the online store for CDs and other publications and events.  Enjoy!
