Yiddish Yesterday and Today

Thursday, May 10, 2018 to Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Explore Yiddish history, literature, music, and film!
All programs take place in Skokie and Evanston

For centuries in Jewish communities in Europe and beyond, Yiddish was a key part of life. Its rich history cuts across continents, communities, and beliefs.

Today — in what some have termed a Yiddish renaissance — new generations are exploring how Yiddish contributes to their understanding of Judaism, Jewish culture, and their own Jewish lives.

Whether you grew up reading the Forverts or are nu to all things Yiddish, this series offers something for you.
