For Patinkin, A Musical Homeland

05/17/2016 - 15:26

On the set of “Homeland,” Mandy Patinkin softly sings Yiddish lullabies before the cameras roll.

These days, whether he’s performing live in concert or recording television, he runs through the lyrics of “Mamaloshen,” his 1998 collection of Yiddish songs, as a warm-up. “It focuses my mind,” he says. “The foreign-language tongue twisters engage my brain.”

A performance May 23 at Lincoln Center will return Mandy Patinkin to the Yiddish he heard while growing up.Jennifer altman
