The oldest continuously running Yiddish theater in New York lost its theater space as a result of the fire last month at Manhattan’s Central Synagogue. The loss of its space in the synagogue is threatening the 83rd season of the Folksbiene Theater, which was scheduled to begin at the end of October.
