More About The Course

Yiddish is a 1,000-year old heritage language with an associated culture that had a significant (positive) influence on mainstream American culture, from music, to theater, to literature, and even to language. It is also on the UN list of Endangered Languages because of the combined forces of genocide, repression, and assimilation in the mid-20th century.

Why study Yiddish? Aside from connecting with the roots of one's own heritage, Yiddish is for anyone who is interested in modern Jewish history, world literature, social movements in Europe and the US, linguistics, the Holocaust, and German.
