2014 Yiddish Winter Course at Beit Ben Yehuda

Following the success of our previous courses we are glad to offer a Yiddish language and literature course again in 2014 as part of our upcoming cultural and educational program. The course comprises 10 days of intensive Yiddish language study at three levels, beginners, medium and advanced, as well as a variety of workshops, lectures, concerts, guided tours and other Yiddish cultural events.

Our Yiddish course was developed in cooperation with Beth Shalom Aleichem of Tel Aviv and Yung Yiddish.

We are all looking forward to hosting you in Beit Ben Yehuda in Jerusalem for our Yiddish language course where you will enjoy world-class language instruction by highly experienced professional teachers and gain insight into the language, literature, music and culture of Jews of Eastern European origin.

Each class will be limited to 15 students.

We would be glad to provide accommodation for participants in our guesthouse.

Please contact us for further information and a detailed schedule of the course program.
