An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, repeating until August 4, 2019
We’ve studied some serious topics in Adult Ed at Temple Hesed – everything from the ethics of war to the Book of Psalms.
Oy – that’s too serious for the summer. So we won’t be schlemiels – we’ll do something fun!
Have you figured it out yet – it’s Yiddish! Everyone knows about “chutzpah,” and probably at least a few Yiddish insults or jokes. But just what do those words actually mean in Yiddish?
For that matter, just what is Yiddish? This series of four light-hearted adult education classes will explore Yiddish culture, cuisine, and, of course, language.
We’ll see clips from Yiddish theatre (with subtitles). We’ll also hear some Yiddish tales and “bintl briefs,” a sort of Yiddish “Dear Abby.”
We’ll even cook a bit together. And through it all, we’ll learn at least a “schmear” of Yiddish.
Classes will run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on four Sundays, July 14, 21, 28 and August 3.
