A Biselle KlezKamp (ABKK) is a free event, held on the UW-Madison campus, that offers more than 20 lectures and participatory workshops on all aspects of Yiddish culture—language, history, visual arts, literature, popular culture, music, and dance, and an age-appropriate children’s program. ABKK culminates in the evening with a concert and dance party featuring live music. This event is lead by world-class artists and scholars from around the country who bring their expertise to the only local event of its kind that both increases Yiddish cultural literacy and develops a sense of community. No previous knowledge of Yiddish language or culture is necessary.

Benefits to the Community
A portion of the door sales as well as the drink and snack sales will benefit The Badger Honor Flight (badgerhonorflight.org), a local nonprofit that ensures WWII and Korean War Veterans have the opportunity to see the memorials that have been erected in their honor.
