Episode #3: A conversation with Shmuel Atzmon - actor, director, founder of the Yiddishpil Theatre


Yiddish, which was not enough in life, or how Shmuel returned to Yiddish after 20 years of his career at the National Hebrew Theater "Habima". The meeting that changed his life... Mother praised him for playing Yiddish, and father taught Hebrew in the Russian rear during the war... And also: touring with the theater from South America to Thailand, and the answer to the question: why you can’t speak Yiddish without using your hands? The entire podcast is permeated with the warmth of the Yiddish language and love for it. Listen to this episode too.
