I have been singing Yiddish songs for over 35 years.

More recently I have been setting Yiddish texts to my own melodies and have set up this website in order to allow access to these settings.

Most of my settings are from the great Yiddish poet and songwriter Mordecai Gebirtig, in particular from the posthumous book of his poems ‘Mayn fayfele’.

I have sung most of these songs at the Yiddish Open Mic Cafe in London and online.

I would like to thank
