from Cantor Joshua Breitzer:

Yiddish theatre proved to be exceptionally fertile creative ground for newly American Jewish composers. The Ukranian-born Goldfaden, son of a watchmaker, was one of the early progenitors of the art form, and this original lullaby proved to be an instant classic. By the mid-twentieth century, acts like the Barry Sisters had brought Yiddish theatre music into the mainstream.
