Debora Vogel (1900 – 1942) was a Polish Jewish poet, philosopher and art critic. She created her own “laboratory of language” and a literary expression unlike any other. In her approach, everything is life, everything is art, and everything matters. Vogel utilized the medium of Yiddish for some of the most advanced writing to come out of European Modernism.

Anastasiya Lyubas, Ph.D. is currently a Visiting Research Fellow at the Northrop Frye Centre at the University of Toronto. Originally from Ukraine, she learned Yiddish as an adult and has translated Debora Vogel’s work into Ukrainian as well. Her new book, Blooming Spaces, is a careful consideration of this strikingly original author which is long overdue in the English-Speaking world.

Miri Koral is the CEO of the California Institute of Yiddish Culture and Language (CIYCL), teaches Yiddish langauge and Film at UCLA, and is a published Yiddish poet.

This program is hosted by the Committee for Yiddish, UJA Federation, and is co-presented by the California Institute of Yiddish Culture and Language, and der Alveltlekher Yidisher Kultur-Kongress (Congress for Jewish Culture) in New York.
