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.

Globally recognized as a program that truly brings the language to life, this Yiddish language summer course provides you with the essentials of this age-old language.. Study the roots of this fascinating language and culture …as you discover modern-day Tel Aviv at your doorstep. 


Program Overview

Our Yiddish language program is for those of you looking to research and uncover the secrets behind this ancient Jewish language.

Enjoy a program that is available to all levels, whether you’re a complete Yiddish beginner or advanced speaker. You’ll also focus on both Yiddish language and literature. Benefit from highly-qualified and experienced teachers in small classes, who will take you on a journey of language discovery. You’ll also benefit from 4 credits awarded for successful completion of the program. Perhaps you can even outdo our 2019 graduates, who performed a hilarious comedy routine for their graduation - entirely in Yiddish!


Another key element of this program is the morning language learning classes – leaving plenty of time in the afternoon for joining compelling lectures, conversation workshops, and tours.
