Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

David Shneer is a one-man dynamo when it's come to bringing into focus the divergent cultural wings of the Jewish diaspora locally, in the past as a professor and director of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver and currently in a similar role at CU-Boulder. And he's starting off his new gig in Boulder with bang, with the Goldberger Week of Jewish Culture.

The series kicks off tonight with "1000 Years of Yiddish Performance: An Evening of Yiddish Culture" with Berliner Jalda Rebling (pictured), a true Renaissance woman in the field, whose talents as a performer and cantor include the interpretation of a musical repertoire stretching from the Middle Ages to modern times. The program, which begins at 7:30 p.m., will be delivered in true cabaret style at the b-side lounge, 2017 13th Street, Boulder, replete with music and storytelling. Rebling returns tomorrow for a discussion on "Jewish Life in Today's Berlin," also with artist/stage designer Anna Adam, at 2 p.m. in UMC 247 on the CU-Boulder.

A multimedia presentation on Jewish vaudeville humor, a film on funny Jewish women and a culminating lecture by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman round out the series. For a complete schedule, go to the program website or call 303-492-7143. Admission to all events is free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
