We’re still here!
Upcoming events include our annual memorial for the Soviet Yiddish writers murdered on August 12, 1952.
In between check in for details on various commemorations for the 100th yortsayt of Sholem Aleichem!
A small Yiddish organization has a tough row to hoe these days. Closing up entirely would be easy, but we feel our mission and unique approach are vital and need partners in these undertakings.

Our Mission די עובֿדא
We are a home and resource for some of the finest writers, poets, translators, composers, and performers working in the field of Yiddish today. We cultivate the language in all of its manifestations: spoken, printed, sung, or acted. We publish Yiddish and English books; present concerts, plays and Purim-shpiln; run classes and literary reading circles; field Yiddish-related questions; we can guide you in finding materials for your reading circle or research, provide your synagogue or community center with Yiddish programming, and, yes, we can even translate the writing on the back of your grandmother’s photographs.
