Sholem Aleichem!

     My name is Michael Marionneaux, I am a student at UT Austin who attended the recent Jewish Folklore Symposium.  Firstly, Mazel Tov on such a great event!  Second, I met some of you there who wanted to see these videos, and also I know there were some who couldn't attend at all.  So I put these here for you.  All I ask is that if you could, please share the link with your friends or others who might want to see, and that you leave a comment below the videos in the guest book.  Feel free to talk about anything, or ask a question.  Or maybe congratulate a speaker on a good job!

     I apologize for the poor quality, but I did not have an assistant that day so some lectures got cut short or missed.  Click {here} for the full schedule, with detailed speaker info.
