the theodore bikel legacy project
“We know what happens when good men and women remain silent in the face of injustice, bigotry and hatred” - Theodore Bikel
The Theodore Bikel Legacy Project was founded by Aimee Ginsburg Bikel several months after the passing of her husband. The TBLP is dedicated to keeping the legacy of Theo Bikel alive while using his great body of work and his principles of Tikkun Olam in our quest to make the world a better place. The TBLP, with Aimee as its director, has produced major civic events, fundraising concerts, musical projects, a documentary film, and lectures for adults and for schoolchildren about the importance of raising our voice in the service of social justice. Aimee regularly screens Bikel's autobiographical film Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Aleichem for audiences across the US; together with her presentation about her late husband's legacy and the lessons for our times, the program makes for a profound, moving, and an inspiring event. To book a TBLP program, and/or a screening of the documentary film Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Aleichem, contact us.
In collaboration with the TBLP, The Milken Archive of Jewish Music produced this 7 minute, archival documentary of Theodore Bikel, narrated by the TBLP director Aimee Ginsburg Bikel.
