From Radical Poets to Rabbinical Scholars: The Yiddish Voices of Kensington Market 

Thursday, October 15, 2020, 1:30-3pm EDT

Between the 1910s-1950s, Toronto was home to a vibrant community of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, with the Kensington Market area as its centre.

Vivian Felsen will tell us the story of how she came to discover the mostly forgotten yet truly remarkable literary activity of this largely working-class, Yiddish-speaking community, and the uniqueness of its writers.
