8 DAYS OF YIDDISHKEIT  PAINTINGS & BOOK 2016-17

8 Days of Yiddishkeit by Reed Seifer

Yiddishkeit means “Jewishness”. It specifically refers to the “Jewish essence” in the popular culture and Yiddish humor of Eastern European Ashkenazi Jews.

 

13 Yiddishkeit-inspired watercolors were painted en plein air in Provincetown, Massachusetts over a period of 8 days in the summer of 2016.

 

A hardbound 52-page book published by Foundation Machamux pairs these paintings with personal memoirs, family photographs, and anecdotes, spinning a trans-Atlantic tale that spans four generations.
