The Swedish government has recognized Yiddish as a minority language in Sweden in accordance with the European Convention (see for more information also this entry). The League for Yiddish in Sweden is the organization that represents Yiddish speakers and the Yiddish language minority in Sweden. The league has been active since 1976 and was previously known as The Society for Yiddish and Yiddish culture in Sweden.
The League promotes Yiddish culture among Yiddish as well as non-Yiddish speakers in Sweden and has local branches in various places such as Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg. These local groups organise cultural evenings, social gatherings and theatrical performances. Each year the League also organises a three-day seminar with lecturers from several countries.
