Yidish-vokh 2010

From the website:

"The goal of Yugntruf: Youth for Yiddish is to provide the younger generation — and the young at heart — with unique opportunities for Yiddish immersion.

Yidish-Vokh is just one of those truly unique opportunities.

After more than 30 years, our Yidish-vokh summer camp continues to draw couples, singles, students, and families for an idyllic week in our “Yiddishland” in upstate New York.

All Yidish-vokh activities are in Yiddish: lectures, sports, folk dancing, discussions, singing around the campfire, reading groups, an amateur talent show, concerts, films, and special events. (Yiddish classes are offered for advanced beginners!)."

During the Yidish-vokh there is a special Yiddish Teachers Seminar: "Scholarships will be awarded to 10-12 Yiddish teachers working at universities, Yiddish schools, and Yiddish clubs -- covering all costsfor the entire week, including room and board, food, all texts, and materials. (Participants in last year's Seminar may reapply.)

Application Deadline: June 15, 2010.
