YidLive! Screening and schtick with YidLife Crisis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join the creators of YidLife Crisis, the world’s first Chai+ web series, Jamie Elman and Eli Batalion, as they mix skits, discussion and screenings, using the “trojan horse” of comedy to bring Yiddish and yiddishkayt to the fore. During an hour of comedy and creativity, they will engage the topic of Jewish identity with their inclusive approach that accepts all forms of Jewry and revitalizes the discussion of Jewish identity. (Warning -- humor.)

Yidlife Crisis

In the summer of 2014, Jamie Elman and Eli Batalion set off to pay tribute to the Yiddish language, culture and comedic tradition they'd been reared on. Calling it "YidLife Crisis," they hatched the world’s first Yiddish sitcom, exploring modern Jewish identity with a mix of comedy, inclusiveness, and a bisl irreverence. Sex, Drugs, Milk & Meat. In Yiddish (and accessible to non-Yiddish speakers!). Rated Chai+. You've been warned.
