The Means and Message for Reformation and Revival (XII) Neal Hegeman | Reformed Fellowship
Looking into Yiddish can mean much more than just language classes, says Zagorin. It can also mean interest in the literature written in Yiddish, whether they read it in Yiddish or translation. There are signs of this interest all over the place. Each summer, a slew of Yiddish festivals pop up in Canada and the U.
And a growing number of universities offer academic credit or degrees in Yiddish. These events usually involve less of a time commitment, and attract people in their 20s and 30s.
Revivals that lose power
The web is also helping to connect lovers of Yiddish with each other; the website www. It has links to the Yiddish pen-pal organization, which has members divided according to ability. Meanwhile, Yugntruf — Yugnt far Yidish , the site of Youth for Yiddish, is aimed at people in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who are into Yiddish. The calendar listing includes groups like the Yiddish Writers Circle.
YIVO just started a summer program alumni newsletter, available online, which should help connect its 1, alumni. For those enrolled in university, cool Yiddish-related internships abound. The National Yiddish Book Center offers graduate students a chance to work on preserving Jewish books while taking Yiddish classes.
Each year, the Center receives about 40 applications for an average of 8 slots, depending on funding. This year, there will be a four-day workshop with prominent Jewish writers including Alicia Ostriker and Irena Klepfisz, along with agents and publishers. This kind of innovative programming is helping to keep Yiddish and institutions concerned with Yiddish on the map.chesdisfkeeded.tk
