A very Yiddish Christmas, Christmas songs by Jews, and more
Today in Tablet Magazine, Marissa Brostoff presents 1920s cartoonist Milt Gross’s Yiddish-inflected version of “The Night Before Christmas”—“De Night in de Front from Chreesmas”—read by a Yiddish actor and accompanied by Gross’s drawings. Music columnist Alexander Gelfand profiles a klezmer quartet started by two brothers whose father lost his family in the Holocaust. David Lehman and Marc Tracy compile the top ten Christmas songs written by Jews. And let The Scroll get you through the day to the long weekend.
