Additional Yiddish Classes at Different Levels Available
Oct 15 – Nov 30 todo el día

We are (literally) taking our Yiddish classes to the next level!

Are you interested in learning how to write/speak/read in Yiddish? The Yiddish Arts and Academics Association of North America (YAAANA) is welcoming our new Yiddish lecturer, Dr. Tanya Yakovleva!

Dr. Tanya Yakovleva, originally from Ukraine, lived and studied in Germany, Italy, and the United States. She recently completed her Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Regensburg, and is an affiliate scholar at UC San Diego. The main topic of her academic work is Odessa in Russian-Jewish literature. Since starting to learn Yiddish in Regensburg (one of the possible birthplaces of this language!), Tanya fell in love with it and decided to bring her passion to both academic and non-academic spheres.

Tanya is interested in teaching Yiddish language/culture classes at all levels. Please send your class requests to us at [email protected].

Times and locations will be arranged based on our students’ needs.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi


Yale Strom (violin, composer, filmmaker, writer, photographer, playwright) is a pioneer among revivalists in conducting extensive field research in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Roma communities.  Initially, his work focused primarily on the use and performance of klezmer music among these two groups.  Gradually, his focus increased to examining all aspects of their culture, from post-World War II to the present.  From more than 3 decades and 75 such research expeditions, Strom has become the world’s leading ethnographer-artist of klezmer music and history.

Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi will bring their trademark scintillating klezmer, Balkan and Roma music with a heavy dose of improvisation to New Village Arts.

The band will feature Gunnar Biggs – contrabass, Fred Benedetti – guitar, Tripp Sprague – tenor/flute, Elizabeth Schwartz – vocals, Gene Perry – Afro-Cuban perfussion and Yale Strom – violin.
