Untern keyzers fenster

Date

1955

Description

[Note from tape log on outside of tape box for the original, spliced tape, not included on the tape log of the dupe:] My childhood in Montreal, Canada, is closely bound with my Yiddish education in a secular Jewish school. Many of these rhymes stem from that environment, as well as the one at home, where my Bessarabian-born mother, shared her own childhood memories of games and rhymes and taunts and teasers, with me. Blessed with a retentive memory...I later picked up many more from my informants. Apparently the first part of the sentence is missing - or the conversation the singer is responding to. She says (in Yiddish) that 65 years ago, she went to kheyder with her brother 41842

[Ruth Rubin’s mother. Note from tape log inside box:] The Children’s World embraces all manner of rhymes, taunts, and teasers, game songs, tales, etc. Where the singer is old, lapse of memory is evident and often several rhymes are combined. My own absorption with this material is also evident and “my mother’s childhood” has become fused with my own, plus, the material which “passed through my hands” (and memory) through my many informants. 41890 Both Ruth Rubin and LOC tapes were digitized. The Ruth Rubin tape is missing some tracks, and when individual tracks were made on 10/2/14 the LOC tape was used. The LOC tape has 37 tracks and Ruth Rubin tape 32. Catalog has been updated to reflect LOC tape and not Ruth Rubin tape.

[Typewritten tape log inside box gives informant’s name as: Rachel Grober-Spivack. Variant seen elsewhere: Rokhl Spivack. ?? Typewritten note on tape log:] Chassidic tune. Mother ’s varied repertoire is an excellent reflection of the different influences on her: the traditional home of her religious-Chassidic parents, the youth interest in Zion, the current songs of the 19th c. pets and popular tunesmiths, the Ukrainian world around her. (Mother was born and raised in Bessarbia.) [Note in typewritten catalog, RG620 black hand-bound hard-cover book:] My mother’s repertoire includes many influences: her childhood in her Chassidic home, the sounds and rhymes and songs of her youth (work songs, Zionist songs), the Slavic environment, Hebrew songs from the Kheyder, where her six brothers studied... (Although one log indicates that the items on this tape were recorded in 1955 in New York City, the songs were actually recorded in different session ranging from the 1940s-60s. LS)

[Typewritten tape log inside box gives informant’s name as: Rachel Grober-Spivack. Variant seen elsewhere: Rokhl Spivack. ?? Typewritten note on tape log:] Zinkever Chassidic song.Mother’s varied repertoire is an excellent reflection of the different influences on her: the traditional home of her religious-Chassidic parents, the youth interest in Zion, the current songs of the 19th c. pets and popular tunesmiths, the Ukrainian world around her. (Mother was born and raised in Bessarbia.) [Note in typewritten catalog, RG 620 black hand-bound hard-cover book:] My mother’s repertoire includes many influences: her childhood in her Chassidic home, the sounds and rhymes and songs of her youth (work songs, Zionist songs), the Slavic environment, Hebrew songs from the Kheyder, where her six brothers studied... (Although one log indicates that the items on this tape were recorded in 1955 in New York City, the songs were actually recorded in different session ranging from the 1940s-60s. LS)
