Nu, vilst redn a bisele yidish? (nu, want to speak a little Yiddish?) An event for Yiddish enthusiasts the world over, the JCS Yiddish club is an informal monthly gathering to celebrate mame-loshn. Hosted by Rebbetzin Chani Ezagui, sessions take place in English and are liberally peppered with Yiddish.
In the spirit of a club, each session includes ample time for audience questions, group discussion, and, time permitting, knock-down, drag-out arguments. Attendees need not know any Yiddish to attend, though some familiarity with the language is highly recommended. It’s not taught in South Florida schools, public or private, lets keep it lebedik — the Yiddish word for alive.
Join for some Yiddish nostalgia with monthly themes that will take you back to the good ‘ole days – every first and third Thursday of the month!
