About 100 people attended the Seattle Polish Film Festival’s Yiddish celebration complete with Klezmer Music. Sasha Senderovich, assistant professor at University of Washington gave an enlightening presentation on the history of Yiddish films, followed by “Yiddle with a Fiddle” starring Mary Picon. Afterwards Peter Lippman talked about Klezmer music and we were treated to a musical performance by Klezmer Local #206.

13,000 Pierogi gone in 4 hours!

…meat pierogi, potato & cheese pierogi, mushroom pierogi not to mention fruit pierogi of all kinds!

Hundreds attended the annual All You Can Eat Pierogi Fest at the Polish Home at 18th & Madison in Seattle. Some went thru the line several times to fill up on these traditional tasty morsels of Poland. While resting between plates of food one could witness cultural activities like a  pierogi making demo; folk dances by Polonez of Vancouver, BC; and listen to music by the polish choir Vivat Musica. Children could learn how to make palms and polish cutouts. Seattle’s own youth group Mlodzi Polanie performed and then taught some courageous adults their wonderful routine!

All in all it was a wonderful afternoon of sharing our Polish culture with family and friends.
