Yiddish Culture: Practical Engagement

International Summer Program

Yiddish and Yiddish culture are studied at Tel Aviv University on a permanent basis during the entire academic year at the Jona Goldrich Institute for Yiddish Language, Literature and Culture, as well as at the Naomi Prawer Kadar International Yiddish Summer Program.

We are very excited to announce Tel Aviv University’s new program, Interdisciplinary Studies in Yiddish Culture and Heritage, partnered with the Yiddish Heritage Preservation Foundation (Israel). This project will be based on students’ work, guided by the university’s faculty, on various aspects of Yiddish culture, including studies of unique materials published on this website.

Starting from the next academic year (2023-2024), this research will be supported by the Rosa Lubin Scholarship program, created by Dr. Mark Zilberquit, the founder of the Yiddish Heritage Preservation Foundation and of our website. Scholarships will be awarded for archival, historical and other studies of Yiddish culture in its various aspects, including theater, music, film and visual arts.
