25% off As Dreams Fall Apart: The Golden Age of Jewish Stage and Film Music (1925–1955)
For the week of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year (September 20 this year), our free download comes from the latest album by Cedille’s Jewish cabaret troupe, the New Budapest Orpheum Society’s As Dreams Fall Apart: The Golden Age of Jewish Stage and Film Music (1925–1955) (our featured CD of the Week — actually a 2-disc set sold at a single-disc price — 25% OFF this week only). From it, I’ve chosen the song "Erlekh zayn" (Be Virtuous) by Yiddish theater superstar Boris Thomashefsky (grandfather of renowned conductor Michael Tilson Thomas). Sung here by New Budapest member Stewart Figa, the song comes from the Yiddish film Bar Mitzvah, the only movie in which Thomashefsky personally appeared (at age 67). The song’s refrain offers a message appropriate for the start of a new year:
Remember this, my child:
Remember this now . . .
Be virtuous, good, and fine,
Here, there, and everywhere.
Give to charity, love your fellow man,
Whether Christian or Jew.
