The Yiddish word Folksbiene translates to “the people’s stage.”

For more than a century, the National Yiddish Theatre has been just that — a voice for immigrant artists and audiences and a place to celebrate a vital cultural legacy nearly destroyed in the years surrounding  World War II. 

Please join us and become part  of the National Yiddish Theatre mishpokhe, or family, by donating today. With your help, the people’s stage will thrive for centuries to come. A hartsikn dank— thank you. 

National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
