Gerry Tenney writes, “I was born in a Yinglish speaking family in the Bronx. Yiddish was all around me as we lived in the same building as my bubi and zeydi. Although I was not raised in linke krayzn [leftist circles], I found my way there in the late fifties and early sixties. I graduated from the Hekherer Kursn [high school level] and taught in the elementar shuln in Queens. From 1963 -1968, I was a camper and group leader at Camp Kinderland. I have remained active in camp activities and went back there to teach music many times. My son Noah also attended camp. In California I was the co-founder of East Bay Kindershul, leader of California Klezmer, and the President of KlezCalifornia. I am currently working on the Beregovski translation project. I, along with Betty Albert Schreck recorded the first Yiddish children’s recording of the current era of Yiddish and Klezmer music. This show will contain live and recorded music.”
