Interview with Rabbi Yitzclok Adler

Interview with Rabbi Yitzclok Adler

Date
1984-08-16
Description
One audio cassette. Born in New York City to German parents, Adler spent most of his life in the US South. He discusses Judaism in the South including his training to be a rabbi; the art of Torah scroll writing; repairing Torah scrolls; Torah origins and interpretations; activities associated with the Sabbath; laws of Kosher; the Jewish community in Jacksonville; Jewish holidays; rites of passage: naming, circumcision, redemption of first born, bar mitzvah; significance of the synagogue; and anti-Semitism. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.

Irish fiddler James Kelly and Klezmer musician Jaime Bronsztein at the 1992 Florida Folk Festival (Crossroads Stage - Festival History)

Date
1992-05-23
Description
Two audio cassette recordings. Jaime Bronsztein and James Kelly discuss their respective musical traditions (klezmer and Irish); how they are played; specific tunes such as the Hava Nagila (Yiddish) and O'Carolan's Concerto (Irish). They also discuss their family backgrounds, careers and George Phillips. They attempt to play an Irish-Israeli version of the Hava Nagila. Because this was the 40th festival, the Crossroads area was partly devoted to performers who contributed to the festival's past and development.
