ABOUT SIDNEY KRUM
The Sidney Krum Young Artists Concert Series and the Sidney Krum Jewish Music and Yiddish Theater Collections at YIVO are made possible by a generous gift from the Estate of Mr. Krum, who came to the United States as a child from the Polish town of Anatolia and learned Yiddish folk songs from his mother. He was a lawyer but spent the bulk of his career as a teacher in the New York City public schools. Throughout his life, he remained dedicated to his Jewish heritage, particularly its music, and to the education of the young people of New York.
