Tuvia Maizel was probably the most important developer in the Yiddish cultural field in Mexico. Thanks to him a Yiddish Teacher Seminar was created. During his years (many years) as cultural Director for the Kehile, he brought to Mexico every possible performer including Yitzhak Perlman, Yitzhak Stern, Giora Feidman, Yaffa Yarkoni and so many more, building up the yearly Yiddish Music Festival to become one of the most important musical activities in the whole country.
Whatever Mr. Maizel touched, became not only a success, but also a source of pride for the community and of inspiration for new generations.
We would like, we strive, to make Save The Music as successful as any of Lerer Maizel's projects but even if we never reach that height we will always have him as an inspiration to what can be achieved when you really work for it.
His passing has made it impossible for us to call directly on his knowledge, savoir faire and experience to help our project level. Still his example is present and we can strive to imitate his success and serve as a support area for all those trying to teach, learn and perform Yiddish music in Mexico.
To honor his memory and exemplary work we inducted him into The Yiddish Music Hall of Fame .
