Talkie of “Chad Gadyo,” Passover Song, Made by German Producers

Download PDF for this date

A "talkie" version of the popular, centuries-old song, "Chad Gadyo," chanted by Jews the world over after Seder every Passover, is the latest achievement of the German film producers. Directed by Herr Julius Pinschewer and rendered by the famous German actress, Irene Trietch, the "talkie" gives a beautiful interpretation of the ritual chant.
