From the website:
"The California Institute for Yiddish Culture & Language (CIYCL) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the living roots of Yiddish.
CIYCL’s projects include intensive Yiddish learning programs; events featuring contemporary Yiddish culture; web-radio broadcasts; and assembling and disseminating a Living Yiddish Treasures DVD archive. Programs are open to all ages, and are offered in collaboration with other local academic and cultural institutions.
The rich learning experiences offered by CIYCL inspire and empower individuals to become the activists, educators, artists, and writers who are needed to ensure that the Yiddish language survives and continues to be renewed."
