The Steiner Summer Yiddish Program 2013


The Steiner Summer Yiddish Program

The Steiner Summer Yiddish Program at the Yiddish Book Center offers college students a tuition-free, seven-week exploration of Yiddish language and culture. The goal of the program is to provide a new generation with:

    Yiddish language literacy
    substantive knowledge of the history, literature, and culture of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe and beyond
    practical models for cultural preservation, research, translation, and artistic expression

The program runs from June 9-July 26, 2013. Six undergraduate college credits will be available through the University of Massachusetts. Limited housing subsidies are available, based on need. The 2013 Steiner Summer Yiddish Program is open to all full-time college students under the age of 26. Beginner and intermediate students are welcome to apply. No prior knowledge of Yiddish is required.

Application deadline: February 10, 2013.
