Zeke Levine takes The Shmooze into the Yiddish Book Center’s vault to explore the Center’s Yiddish sheet music collection. Zeke’s fellowship responsibilities include cataloguing the collection, and in the process of his work he’s uncovered some interesting finds, including two of his favorites—sheet music of Abi Gezunt, from the film Mamele starring Molly Picon, and a piece from the 1960s about Der Sputnik by Sam Liptzin. As Zeke continues his tour, he discusses both individual pieces as well as the collection as a whole, which includes over 1,000 titles from the Hebrew Publishing Company and Metro Music collections.
