Episode 68 with our favorite Bronx Boychik, Avi Hoffman, an internationally known actor, who specializes in Jewish culture and Yiddish theater. His long-running “Too Jewish” trilogy has been seen by millions on PBS and in venues around the world. He has produced and presented shows throughout North America, Europe and Israel. International Festivals include Romania, Poland, New York, Toronto, Montreal, Tel-Aviv and other European cities and countries. He was recently awarded Congressional recognition, was invited to the Vatican to meet Pope Francis and was inducted into the Bronx Jewish Hall of Fame for his lifetime work advancing Jewish culture, Yiddishkayt and Holocaust awareness through the charity he founded the Yiddishkayt Initiative, Inc. (YILoveJewish.org).
Enjoy our conversation and learn about Avi's connection to the Borscht Belt, his roots to the Yiddish theatre and how Y I LOVE JEWISH is providing opportunities for the Jewish community to LEARN more about their cultural heritage and the rich and wonderful world of Yiddishkayt.
