Lecture Series: "The Family Singer: Three Siblings and Their Stories" with Professor Anita Norich
The Family Singer: Three Siblings and Their Stories is a downloadable lecture series by Professor Anita Norich.
While often over-shadowed by the popularity and longevity of their younger brother Isaac Bashevis, both I.J. Singer and Esther Singer Kreitman were significant Yiddish authors in their own right. In these lectures, Yiddish literary scholar Anita Norich explores the three siblings’ different views of Jewish life and of Jews’ place in the world.
