The notorious Yiddish Yentlemen and self-declared International Jewish Icons make their long-awaited return to their hometown of Montreal on Thursday, November 21, with an all-new shtick. The zany duo of Eli Batalion and Jamie Elman will re-desecrate…dedicate the Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom sanctuary with their "YidLive! show," featuring comedy, music and thought-provoking narishkayt. The event will be MC’d by Andy Nulman and no knowledge of Yiddish is required. Sense of humor preferred.
Proceeds from this fundraising show will help Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom enhance its cultural and educational programs and the services it offers to the community.
YidLife Crisis is a Yiddish comedy Web series and Jewish cultural brand created by two friends, Eli Batalion and Jamie Elman, who wanted to pay homage to the yiddishkayt in their upbringing by casting their Jewish comedic lens on life’s idiosyncrasies. With support from Shaping our Future Grants, they created YidLife Crisis as a love letter to modern Jewish identity. Their shows, which are performed mostly in Yiddish, make Jewish identity inclusive to all through the ice-breaking power of comedy.
What started as a passionate project turned into a hit with more than 3,000,000 video views and 30,000 subscribers, global press, awards and accolades, appearances, and video productions around the world. Their odd style of comedy attracted collaborations with top talent like Mayim Bialik and Howie Mandel, and the opportunity to perform at comedy festivals with various organizations, Jewish community centers and academic institutions.
YidLife Crisis at Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom is made possible with the support of the Brian Bronfman Family Foundation. Proceeds will support the Temple’s work.
