Myriam Fuks was born in 1949 in Tel Aviv with Yiddish in her blood. Her mother, Franja Glasman, was an actress in one of Europe's leading Yiddish theatres: the Kaminsky theater of Warsaw. Her uncle was a Yiddish poet and journalist. At the age of 12, Myriam Fuks joined the Yiddish Ykult theatre in Brussels. In 1974 she returned to Israel and became famous thanks to a song contest which was broadcast on national television. By 1984 her fame had spread to New York. Her recordings are acclaimed throughout the world. Myriam sings her love for Yiddish both on television and in the concert halls of Europe. Music is her natural language and Yiddish the language of emotion, of expressing the joy, the sadness and the story of the people of a place where music and songs are part of everyday life. Myriam Fuks is also an actress and has just completed filming 'A Secret' directed by Claude Miller, starring the French actors Patrick Bruel, Cecile de France and Julie Depardieu.
