Recorded in concert at the University of Florida@ Gainesville.



A docu-music video of the Olshanetsky-Wolfson song, performed by Fraidy Katz set against images of inter-war Jewish Vilna (Vilnius, Lithuania). A gentle, sensitizing tool for all ages and an excellent short before a main program.
Music " Vilna" from "Di Alte Kashe (The Eternal Question): Fraidy Katz Sings Yiddish"

Music " Vilna"  from "Di Alte Kashe (The Eternal Question): Fraidy Katz Sings Yiddish"

From The Daily Hampshire Gazette,
It's not your typical music video. No breakneck rock and roll riffs or images of tight-skirted women and bare-chested men.

Instead, hauntingly beautiful lyrics ride landscapes of crowded streets, friendly forests and stone city buildings.

In six minutes of tape faces of Jewish people learning and relaxing, praying and posing fill the screen. And a melody that yearns for the days before World-War II fills your ears.
-- Tzivia Gover

"...wonderful and moving video.
 ...a well-produced and executed piece of work to accompany a touching rendition of this song."
