I will be teaching an Advanced Yiddish class online, March 1- 4, 2021 at YAAANA’S Spring Intensive Yiddish Program.
Description: This class is for students with more than two years of Yiddish language study who can read and discuss literary texts in the original language. We will read literary texts by women writers such as Rokhl Faygenberg, Rokhl Korn and Anna Margolin. Grammar that we will learn will be based on topics that arise from these texts.
Time: Mon-Thurs, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST (8 a.m. PST, 4 p.m. in the U.K., 5 p.m. in most of Europe, 6 p.m. in Israel), March 1-4
