Yiddishkayt Initiative Programs and Services

YI produces and promotes a wide range of programs and services to participating organizations. These programs fall into three categories, all central to engaging and building the Jewish community.


We Create turn-key Solutions for your Jewish Cultural Events
The Yiddishkayt Initiative’s wide experience in the cultural and entertainment worlds allows us to locate, gather and package contemporary expressions of Jewish culture, in forms ranging from a single performance or exhibition to a complete Jewish festival.


Education Programming provided in association with the University of Miami’s George Feldenkreis Program in Judaic Studies and the Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies.

Speakers & Curriculum
Yiddishkayt Initiative can provide Speakers, Lecturers and local educators with Jewish Cultural programs and written study guides for even the youngest ages. Guides for adults wishing to deepen their knowledge about Judaism are available as well. We’ll also offer our knowledge and insights online, in an easily accessible format, via the Yiddishkayt Initiative website.

Holocaust Awareness & Events
Yiddishkayt Initiative can connect your community to the best contemporary Jewish discussions on Jewish languages, culture, Holocaust studies, philosophy and ethics. We’ll make all the arrangements for these personal appearances, which can include book signings and question and answer session
