Expand your Yiddish conversation, reading, writing, and grammar skills while exploring the lyrics of Yiddish songs with instructor Hindy Nosek-Abelson.


This course will expand your Yiddish conversation, reading, writing, and grammar skills through exploring the lyrics of Yiddish songs. These lyrics vividly portray cosmopolitan, secular and religious Yiddish culture that developed throughout Eastern and Central Europe, North and South America before, during and after the Holocaust. Participants will be engaged in lively Yiddish discussions about what these songs express. Prerequisites: This course is suitable for those with one session or more of Yiddish study, or previous Yiddish knowledge. Participants are expected to be able to read and write alef-beys at a rudimentary level and are comfortable using the present tense and asking questions.  Instructor: Hindy Nosek-Abelson
