Borscht Beat Sundays at 1 P.M.

Aaron Bendich’s weekly Jewish music program today at 1pm, featuring a unique mix of timeless, sentimental classics and rare oddities.


The show’s title reflects the so-called “Borscht Belt,” a collection of cottages, hotels, and entertainment venues that catered to a Jewish clientele during the mid-twentieth century in the Catskills.


Bendich says, “Most of the artists I play have, at one time, performed within WJFF’s broadcast area. I think it’s very wonderful and exciting that my show is now on the station.


There is some beautiful continuity with the rich Jewish cultural history of the region.”

    Mazel Tov on your radio show!! I am very excited to hear about it. Wondering why I have never heard about this until now!!! My name is Pearl. I live in Brooklyn, NY. My parents were Holocaust survivors, I was born in the DP Camp of Bergen Belsen, Germany. I speak Yiddish fluently, I taught Yiddish speaking in my shul East Midwood Jewish Center. It is the largest Conservative Synagogue in Brooklyn. I am volunteer and work with the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbeine. I spent 25 years during the summer and many bungalow colonies.
    I commend you for all of your work and now you have an additional “listener” – I will forward your website to many family members and friends.
    Please tell me about yourself.
    “Ah Sheinem Dank” for keeping Yiddishkeit alive.
