This class will be a review/refresher for participants who attended Yiddish class in the spring of 2015 and will also be offered to any newcomers interested in learning Yiddish.

This session will move us forward in our learning of Yiddish. In this class, participants will delve into Yiddish phrases, some writing and reading Yiddish, as well as Yiddish movies, Yiddish music and its culture. We will read and hear tales from Sholem Aleichem, as well as other Yiddish authors and discuss the selections. Our final session will most likely include a wonderful Yiddish potluck - the favorite of many last year! The class is open to members and non-members.
