A mol iz geven a meydele

Title

A mol iz geven a meydele

Date

1947

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. Sorele (pretty) & Moshe (small)’s mother goes to the market and doesn’t come back right away... they go into the woods and get lost, meet big, black bear, says what are you doing in the woods, aren't you afraid? I'm going to eat you up. The children promise their mother's poppy cookie. Bear leaves, then came a wolf. Ditto to bear. There is a storm and they are crying. The singer adds another verse - an angel suddenly came & led them out of the woods. 41842

Fun papir a hendele

Title

Fun papir a hendele

Date

1948

Description

[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.
