The Vitebsk Jewish Choir Sings in celebration of the recently constructed Barry and Merle Ginsburg Building, the new community center in Vitebsk. For those of you who do not know about this important Belarusian city, Vitebsk is the birthplace of Marc Chagall, and at the turn of the 20th century, Vitebsk housed 35,000 Jews, more than 50% of the city's general population. "L'chaim," a Russian/Yiddish song is performed here by the head soloist who, even at 81, cannot help but dance.
