2021 Summer Program Announcement

It is our intention to hold the 2021 Yiddish Summer Program in person in Tel Aviv. Should the ongoing Coronavirus crisis prevent international travel or 
in-person gathering, we will move parts or all of the program to a virtual format, in compliance with official health guidelines.

Please note that this year, due to the pandemic, we are able to accept only a limited number of non-students into our program. You are defined as a student if you are currenlty studying at any degree levels or have completed a degree in the past five students.

Also of note: We reserve places for non-students who are working in the arts profession and are planning to incorporate Yiddish into their artwork in any form. If applicable, please make note of these plans on your application form.

From elementary Yiddish to advanced Yiddish for research students, this summer language program is available at all levels. The program focuses on both Yiddish language and literature and is taught by highly-qualified and experienced teachers in small classes. 4 credits are awarded for successful completion of the program. Language learning classes are held in the morning and are supplemented by afternoon programs of lectures, conversation workshops, and tours.


Additional social activities and trips around the country, such as to the North, the Dead Sea and Jerusalem, are conducted by our Madrichim. Precise dates for these will be announced closer to the program start date.
