YIVO Yiddish Club: Yiddish Hip Hop with Josh “Socalled” Dolgin
Hosted By: YIVO
An event for Yiddish enthusiasts the world over, the YIVO Yiddish club is an informal monthly gathering to celebrate the mame-loshn (mother tongue). Hosted by Shane Baker, sessions take place in English, and are liberally peppered with Yiddish. Each month Baker is joined by a different guest who discusses their work and a related Yiddish cultural theme. In the spirit of a club, sessions are held as interactive zoom meetings in which participants can see and hear one another. Each session includes ample time for audience questions, group discussion, and, time permitting, knock-down, drag-out arguments. Attendees need not know any Yiddish to attend, though some familiarity with the language is highly recommended.
