Red Kaddish Walking Tour
The stories and voices of past Jewish and Russian radicals come to life on this combination walking tour/performance art piece visiting sites of political radicalism of 19th-century Lower East Side. Fiks maps the Lower East Side of Emma Goldman via writings by Russian anarchist Pyotr Kropotkin, Abraham Cahan’s via Russian revolutionary democrat Nikolay Chernyshevsky, and so on. Incorporating texts in English, Yiddish and Russian, artist Yevgeny Fiks memorializes the revolutionary promise to create a better world and a more just society both here in America and in the Russian homeland.
$15 per person
The Museum at Eldridge Street is a landmark for the Jewish immigrant experience in NYC. Wonderful programming. Check out their website. This one, above, features one of my favorite thinkers, Pyotr Kropotkin. How I wish we were in NYC this weekend for this Red Kaddish event!
