It can be tough to find a Yiddish class irl (in real life) if you aren’t a college student or a New York resident. But now it’s easier for Chicago folks to learn Yiddish: the Chicago YIVO has announced a new series of courses to be launched in October.
Classes for beginners will be taught by Shifra Whiteman (level 1) and Dr. Khane-Faygl Turtletaub (level 2), who will also teach the classes for more advanced students. An intensive seminar will be held for those who wish to skip the first level of the beginner’s class.
The classes will meet nine times at Sketchpad. Tuition is $110.
For more information or to register for a class visit the website of the Chicago YIVO.
