If you’ve heard any of the myths about Yiddish (it’s a dying language; it’s only spoken by old Jews) and want to separate fact from fiction, join Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan for this lighthearted, informative lecture on the history of the language, how Yiddish expressions reflect a Jewish worldview, and how Jews incorporated their wanderings into the language and Yiddish culture. Please register in advance and the program link will be sent to you.
