Jewish Wordle: A Conversation with the Creators of Ladino, Yiddish, and Jewish English Versions
Hosted By: HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project
Wordle, the international word game sensation, now has multiple Jewish versions. Join us for a fun, enlightening conversation with some of their developers: Nesi Altaras, Jamie Conway, and Abra Kaplan. Why and how did they create them? How did they make decisions about which alphabets, spellings, and words to use? How have these games raised awareness about Jewish languages, and what educational applications are possible? Jodi Rudoren, Editor-in-Chief of the Forward, moderates the conversation, and Sarah Bunin Benor, Director of the Jewish Language Project, provides commentary. You can submit your own questions when you register.
Sponsored by the HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project (Los Angeles), Forward (New York), and Shalom (Sydney).
