We are proud to announce that due to demand, we are expanding our “Vilt Ir Lernen Yiddish” courses.

If you want to start learning Yiddish, we are offering a beginners class with Congregation Beth Sholom of Northbrook every Wednesday at 11:30 AM (New time starts April 6 at 3:30 PM).

Our  Advanced classes continue to meet every Thursday at 1:00 PM.

Both courses cost $100 per person

Instructor:  Eyshe Beirich - A third-year graduate student at the University of Chicago majoring in Germanic Studies and Jewish Studies, Beirich intends to pursue a Ph.D. in Yiddish Studies—extending an academic path that began two years ago as a journey of familial discovery. Join us as we explore Yiddish together!

We’re so happy to have you join us! Please be aware that by registering for this class you will be expected to:

  • attend class regularly
  • practice a little bit of Yiddish each day (light homework)
  • You must purchase the textbook -- Colloquial Yiddish by Lily Kahn (Click here to purchase on Amazon).

The book is expensive, but Gela feels it is an essential part of learning beginning Yiddish.
