While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Brivele and Other Jewish Anti-Fascists

Jewish Voice for Peace Presents an Evening with BRIVELE ! בריוועלע and Other Jewish Anti-Fascists, living and dead!
BRIVELE is a Seattle-based anti-fascist klezmer folk-punk trio who braid together oral history, Yiddish language, contemporary and old-country musical genres, American Vaudeville, and visual arts. Brivele is pronounced “BREE-veh-leh” (בריוועלע) and means “Little Letter” in Yiddish.
JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE members are inspired by Jewish tradition to work together for peace, social justice, equality, human rights, respect for international law, and a U.S. foreign policy based on these ideals.
