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.
