Yiddish is Alive and Well and Living All Over the Place

Hosted By: Chicago YIVO Society

Yiddish has been rapidly gaining prominence across the world.  Professorships and university programs are increasing, and major  universities are now offering Yiddish for fulfillment of the language  requirement.  Yiddish classes at all levels, live and online, are offered by organizations such as YIVO, the Workers Circle, and the Paris  Yiddish Institute, to name only a few. Klezmer groups and choirs draw large audiences, as do performances on stage and in film. Lectures in and about Yiddish are increasingly popular, and audiences have greatly  increased thanks to Zoom.

Professor Jeffry Mallow, Professor Emeritus of Physics, Loyola University Chicago  and Affiliate Professor, University of Haifa, will present examples of  each, and more.
