Yiddish Farm offers a new summer program:

This is a unique chance to spend the summer in a pluralistic, Yiddish-speaking community. Participants spend their days studying Yiddish language, literature and theater as well as working the land.

Registration closes on March 15.

How does this differ from other Yiddish programs?

  • Hundreds of hours of sustained Yiddish immersion with native speakers
  • A place to live on the farm and delicious, organic food fresh from the fields
  • Hands-on agricultural experience
  • Diverse cultural and educational programming
  • The Steiner Summer Program at the Yiddish Book Center offers college students a tuition-free, seven-week immersion in Yiddish language and culture. The goal of the program is to provide a new generation with:

  • Yiddish language literacy
  • Substantive knowledge of the history, literature, and culture of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe and beyond
  • Practical models for preservation, research, translation, and artistic expression
  • The Uriel Weinreich Program in Yiddish Language, Literature, and Culture of Bard-YIVO Institute for East European Jewish History and Culture offers peerless instruction in the Yiddish language and an in-depth exploration of the literature and culture of East European/American Jewry.

    Start: 25 Jun 2012

    The summer program will take place on the Tel Aviv University campus from June 25 to July 19, 2012. The program offers intensive Yiddish instruction at five levels. Language instruction will be supplemented by an afternoon program of lectures, conversation workshops, tours, and by evening cultural and social events.
