Diario Judío México - Speaking Yiddish may be one of the things you’ve always wanted to do. But for whatever reason, you’re just not ready to dig into a textbook. Yet your love of Yiddish remains! Yiddish You Can Use aims to teach you the quality, rich, expressive, idiomatic Yiddish that you crave. You’ll learn beyond “putz and kugl” – with full transliteration and English explanation. No Yiddish experience required at all! You’ll learn a mixture of jokes, blessings and curses. Best of all, you can start using these Yiddish terms right away in your everyday English!
Taught by Dave Fried: Dave Fried is a dedicated Yiddishist living in Chicago. He has learned Yiddish in Vilna, Lithuania as well as New York. He has been teaching Yiddish for almost two years – with a special focus on welcoming newcomers to the language. While not knee deep in Yiddish, he likes bike rides, noodles and Jewish punk rock.
Class will run about an hour or so – giving time for questions and close with a song!
