Workmen’s Circle Names New Leader

The Workmen’s Circle/Arbeter Ring, a century-old fraternal organization devoted to the furtherance of Yiddish language and culture, recently appointed its first female executive director. Ann Toback, formerly the assistant executive director of the Writers Guild of America, East, was installed June 9.

Originally a socialist organization devoted to safeguarding the rights of immigrant workers, the Workmen’s Circle has in recent decades reoriented its mission toward the cultural sphere while maintaining a focus on social justice.
