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.

    This summer university in the heart of Paris brings together students from a dozen countries, offering a rare opportunity to use Yiddish as a language of communication between students, teachers and organizers. It has been set up with the help of the Alain de Rothschild Institute and the Rachel Ajzen et Léon Iagolnitzer Foundation under the auspices of the Fondation de France.

    Yiddish Summer Weimar is famous throughout the world for its ground-breaking program of intensive workshops, concerts, jam sessions, dance balls and more. In 2012, our special topic is "The bridges of Ashkenaz" – connections in song, instrumental music, dance and language between the Western European origins of Yiddish culture and its great flowering in Eastern Europe many centuries later.
