Rokhl Kafrissen is one of today's leading writers on contemporary Yiddish cultural production. Her biweekly column "Rokhl's Golden City" does a deep dive on a current topic, and also includes a list of links, the "must see/hear/experience" of Yiddish arts and culture. Labzik himself is the lead and main framing device for her article on the legacy of Jewish communists in the US, and Theater Emory's presentation of Labzik is the very top link in her what's-hot-in-Yiddish roundup.
