Aleym Haderekh


Aleym Haderekh




Text: Elyokum Zunser [Note on typewritten tape log inside box:] Moshe Frank, journalist. Age 67. Born in White Russia. Speaks of the Zionist movement and his memories relating to the First Aliyah (before World War I). (Unfortunately the noise of New York traffic and sirens interfered at times) [note: Obviously Moshe Frank sings his songs in Ashkenazic Hebrew - which was natural for his particular environment in White Russia.] MT: Tape Listing in Box and Tape listing from LC are slightly different, LC track listing appears to be updated.
