Get Your Yiddish On! With Boris Sandler
August 3, 2017 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Famed Yiddishist Boris Sandler, author of sixteen Yiddish books and former Editor-in-Chief of the Yiddish Forverts, will lead a conversation on Pathways for Yiddish Creativity in the Post-War Generation. Sandler himself witnessed and was an active part of the 1980s revival of Yiddish language, literature, and culture in the Soviet Union, Israel, and the US. And he transformed the Yiddish Forverts for a new generation of Yiddishists by bringing the Forverts online to a worldwide digital audience in the twenty-first century. Come enrich your vocabulary and learn from a contemporary Yiddish expert about this illuminating subject!
