Learn Yiddish This Semester

Our Yiddish language classes offer not only an introduction to the language that has been spoken by the Ashkenazi Jews for more than a millennium, but also an opportunity to discover the amazing world of Yiddish literature, and culture. Using new media, games and music, as well as field trips to Yiddish theater, Yiddish-speaking neighborhoods, and Yiddish organizations, you'll learn how to speak, read, listen and write in a language that gives you access to the enormously rich Yiddish culture that waits for new explorers. Be part of the generation that revives Yiddish!
