Jewish Language Project: Jeffrey Shandler on Yiddish: Biography of a Language
The most widely spoken Jewish language on the eve of the Holocaust, Yiddish continues to play a significant role in Jewish life today, from Hasidim for whom it is a language of daily life to avant-garde performers, political activists, and LGBTQ writers turning to Yiddish for inspiration. Yiddish: Biography of a Language presents the story of this centuries-old language, the defining vernacular of Ashkenazi Jews, from its origins to the present. In this event, co-sponsored by the HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project and Yiddishkayt, Jeffrey Shandler will present about this book in conversation with Sarah Bunin Benor.
