A cultural celebration

Join us for Minnesota’s own Yiddish and Klezmer festival, in winter! From February 2-5, 2023, Klezmer on Ice celebrates Eastern European Jewish culture in the Midwest with a weekend of dancing, singing, performances, and workshops — including out on the ice.

Klezmer on Ice 2023 features appearances by Rabbi Noam Lerman, Jake Shulman-Ment and Midwood, Twin Cities’ local Yiddish and klezmer performers, Lawrence University’s The Klezmommies, and the Longfellow Village Band community klezmer jam.
