Dear Safranim,

I'm sharing this news with you as a member of the Digital Yiddish Theatre
Internet Resource: volume 7 of Zalmen Zylbercweig’s Encyclopedia of the
Yiddish Theatre
by Joel Berkowitz

The Digital Yiddish Theatre Project (DYTP) is pleased to announce the
digital publication of volume 7 of Zalmen Zylbercweig’s *Encyclopedia of
the Yiddish Theatre*.

The digital publication allows users around the world, for the first time,
to browse the volume from the convenience of their computers. The
user-friendly interface created by Familiar Studio allows users to read the
text onscreen, or to print PDF files of individual entries. The volume can
be found on the Digital Yiddish Theatre Website at

Zylbercweig  (1894 – 1972) compiled and published the previous six volumes
between 1931 and 1969. The seventh volume was all but complete at the time
of his death in 1972. The galleys to volume 7 are kept in the archives of
the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research in New York. A copy is housed in the
Israel Goor Theatre Archives and Museum in Jerusalem.

*About the Digital Yiddish Theatre Project*

The DYTP was formed in recognition of the linguistic, cultural, and
geographic complexity of the Yiddish theatre, and of the ability of
emerging digital humanities tools and methodologies to address that
complexity. Together, we hope to address the full range of Yiddish
theatrical production, from its beginnings to the present day. This
site represents the first fruits of our collaboration: a place for us to
share and discuss our findings with each other and with a wider public
audience of those interested in learning more about the Yiddish stage.

   Please visit our site at where you can view
   this and other research resources on Yiddish theater.
