Book Presentation:

SATURDAY, December 6th @ 7:30 pm

by Alexander J. Motyl

Based on the life stories and personal memories of the author's mother, uncle, and aunt, "Fall River" is a multi-dimensional exploration of how family history, Ukrainian roots, and European war shaped the personal destinies of three Ukrainian Americans who were born in Fall River, grew up in interwar Poland, and returned to an America that was as alienating as it was welcoming.

Christmas Concert 7 PM
St. Basil Academy
Jenkintown, PA

December 13, 2014

SATURDAY, December 13th @ 7:30 pm

This December Yara Arts Group will present a series of concerts entitled: "Koliada and Music from the Carpathians" at the Ukrainian Museum in New York, at UACCNJ in Whippany, at the Ukrainian League in Philadelphia, in Washington, DC and at Bard College. The Koliada events will also include an art exhibit and will culminate with a new theatre show "Winter Light "with the Koliadnyky and Yara Arts Group December 26-28 at La MaMa Theatre in New York.

The Koliadnyky are a group of five men from the Carpathian Mountains in western Ukraine who sing traditional winter songs from the village of Kryvorivnia. The event will also feature the brilliant "troista" instrumental music from the Carpathians. The Koliada is a winter ritual that now coincides with Christmas, but long pre-dates it in some parts of Eastern Europe. High in the Carpathian Mountains, in the Hutsul villages where the oldest songs are preserved, Koliada is considered to be the most important event of the year. Groups of male singers visit each family and sing ancient songs that are believed to hold special powers. According to tradition, spring and the harvest will not come unless the songs are sung in every household.

Worried about parking?
A paid parking lot is located on the 2200 block of Fairmount Ave., across from Zorba's restaurant, a short 2-block walk to the club. The spots around the school (across from the club) and those along Poplar St. are usually the last to fill up. Or come early, park, and visit one of the many fantastic venues in the Fairmount area!

We are an organization run by volunteers!
While the board members have been doing a wonderful job of reviving the League's presence in Philadelphia, volunteers are always in need to ensure the League's continued existence.

Make your mark and help the club grow! From Pub Night to Ukrainian Cultural Events, Live Music including wonderful acts from Ukraine, Arts shows, the Christmas Bazaar, private events, film, charity and more - you can use the club to create a rich experience for yourself, your family and your friends.

Fresh, new ideas are also always welcome!

Our Ukrainian kitchen is open on Fridays serving up delicious traditional Ukrainian food!
