The mission of the Museum is to educate people of all ages and backgrounds about the broad tapestry of Jewish life in the 20th and 21st centuries—before, during, and after the Holocaust. Multiple perspectives on modern Jewish history, life, and culture are presented in the Museum’s unique Core Exhibition and award-winning special exhibitions. Acclaimed public programs, including discussions, films, plays, and concerts, highlight the richness of Jewish culture and ideas. The Museum is also home to National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene.

Baruch Performing Arts Center convenes a conversation across the disciplines of science, art and the humanities, as well as across the panoply of world societies that are represented in Baruch’s diverse student body. We do this by presenting and producing theater, music, dance, literary and spoken word, film, and discussions which inform through relevant content and engage through singular experiences, enriching the appreciation of Baruch students, faculty and alumni for culture in its broadest sense, while serving as a resource for all New Yorkers.
City Winery is a popular New York destination for wine, food and music lovers. Located in the heart of Tribeca, City Winery hosts nightly concerts of many musical genres, and often features household names headlining, or making surprise cameo appearances. A first class menu adds to the allure of this important nightspot. For Kulturfest, City Winery is also a “dayspot”, where a series of Sunday brunches will feature unique Jewish music ensembles offering a rich variety of cultural traditions.
Joe’s Pub is part of the New York Public Theater which was created by the legendary impresario Joseph Papp who also founded and led the New York Shakespeare Festival. Joe’s Pub and the Public Theater are located in a building which was once the home of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, which assisted hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Jewish immigrants from the late 19th century through much of the 20th century. Late in his career, Papp committed himself to playing a role in inspiring a revival of Yiddish culture in New York and around the world. He produced the successful Yiddish musical “Songs of Paradise” and inspired Mandy Patinkin to learn and record Yiddish music. Joe’s Pub,which carries his name, is partnering with Kulturfest on June 6 (Yemen Blues) and then on 5 consecutive nights beginning June 16 in a star studded mini-festival of Jewish music. If you reserve 2 or more of these programs, you will receive a discount of $5 for each. (add the Joe’s Pub box office info)
