Album Notes
In 1929, my parents fled their homes in Eastern Europe and arrived in Canada with little more than the clothes on their backs. Moyshe and Ida, of blessed memory, married in Montreal and settled in a shtetl-like working-class neighborhood composed of new immigrants. It was their dream to create a safe and comfortable life for their family in which Jewish education and the preservation of the Yiddish language and culture would be a top priority.
I grew up in a home where Yiddish was the only language spoken. My three siblings and I attended the local Protestant school along with Peretz Shule, where I discovered and fell in love with the vibrancy and raw emotionality of the Yiddish folksong. It was there that I learned and performed each of the songs contained in this album. Melodies of children, parents, grandparents, teachers, lovers, victims, survivors and rebuilders are indelibly engraved in my heart and mind.
As a teacher, parent and grandparent, I continue to sing and interpret Yiddish songs in the hope that our stories of trials, tribulations, and victories of past generations, will live on. It is now my endeavor and obligation to perpetuate the dreams of my immigrant parents.
Zingt Zhe Kinder is dedicated to my children – Bryan, Danna, Marc, Ann, Ian, Courtney, and to their children – Uriah, Maayan, Shahar, Shira, Zach, Alexia, Lauryn and Ashton – so that we may all remember.
With love and hope for the future. ~Lorraine
