'Oy Vey' is Jewish for 'Uff-Da' - An Evening with Elisa Korenne
'OY VEY' IS JEWISH FOR 'UFF-DA'
created/performed by Elisa Korenne

SATURDAY, APRIL 6 AT 7:30 PM
SUNDAY, APRIL 7 AT 4 PM

When performer/songwriter/storyteller Elisa Korenne moved from NYC to New York Mills, MN she felt like the only Jew for miles  or so it seemed. After noticing Jewish names on street signs and stores, Elisa started researching the Jews who once lived near her new hometown and discovered that in the 19th- and 20th-centuries, many Jews immigrated to the rural upper Midwest, and a good number of them were farmers. A fascinating, humorous and thoughtful hour of stories and songs about this small, unlikely, and mostly extinct group of rural Minnesotans, North Dakotans, and other Midwestern Jews. 'Oy Vey!' Is Jewish For 'Uff-da!' bridges a large gap in the knowledge of and about Jews in our own backyard and around the country. Learn more at www.elisakorenne.com.

This project was made possible with support from the Howard B. and Ruth F. Brin Jewish Arts Endowment Fund, a designated fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation.

This performance is presented in partnership with the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest (www.jhsum.org).

Each performance will be followed by a discussion with the artist.
