For many years now, the Chanukka concerts of the Shtetl Berlin Yiddish Festival (formerly known as Shtetl Neukölln) and the Jewish Musem Berlin send out a ray of light in the dark Berlin winter. In this special event, we present some of the brightest stars of the Berlin Yiddish Music Scene.

Especially this year, as the corona pandemic is still raging in the world, this group of artists comes together to remind their online spectators about the sense of community, bring everybody together to enjoy the Festival of Lights and togetherness through Yiddish Song, instrumental music and dance.

Hetty Berg, director of the Jewish Museum Berlin, will join the musicians for the candle lighting.
