Klezmer is an instrumental musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Central and Eastern Europe. The essential elements of the tradition include dance tunes, ritual melodies, and virtuosic improvisations played for listening; these would have been played at weddings and other social functions. Wikipedia

KlezWest is an informal group of musicians, dancers, Yiddish speakers and friends who love to explore, play and dance to Klezmer music. We meet monthly to learn songs together, practice different kinds of Yiddish dance, and connect.

Klezwest monthly jams and dance are co-sponsored by Or Shalom and by Kol Halev Performance Society
