Yiddish

Classes for Yiddish - The Saul and Ethel Rose Bolton Program

Yiddish, a uniquely Jewish language, is one of the richest in the world, full of expressions of pathos, wit and wisdom that draw upon the collective Ashkenazic experience of over one thousand years. While the mameloshn (native tongue) was almost destroyed by fascism and totalitarianism in the 20th Century, the legacy of this endangered heritage includes a superb modern literature, an abundance of gorgeous songs, and unrivaled historical record keeping.
