Jake Shulman-Metz and I were meeting with members of the Cluj Klezmer band to discuss venues for Jake's concert tour in June. My department chair, who is Jewish, introduced us to a young man who is doing his doctoral dissertation on Jewish music, he took us to the Jewish Canteen and introduced us to the members of the Klezmer band.
