What is Yiddish?
Wait, isn’t it dead?
Next week the Partners In Torah Guest Speakers Series will feature a special free class by Mrs. Jana Mazurkiewicz Meisarosh of The Yiddish Arts And Academics Association Of North America, entitled “All you need to know about Yiddish revival in San Diego County and beyond!”
Jana is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan. She is working on her dissertation on Yiddish Theater in Communist Warsaw. Originally from Poland, Jana holds a Master of Arts degree in Polish Philology and Jewish Studies from the University of Wrocław. Jana is not only a practicing academic, but also an active theater artist and critic, and a Yiddish Activist. In 2017, she moved to San Diego and launched the Yiddish Arts and Association of North America (YAAANA) – a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of Yiddish language and culture by offering low-cost Yiddish language classes, theater workshops, song workshops, lectures, and Jewish holiday celebrations to the broader community.
