A 6-week conversational Yiddish online course utilizing the curricula and materials developed by Columbia University Professor Miriam Hoffman and under the guidance and direction of her son, renowned actor and course professor Avi Hoffman, connecting the academic roots of the Yiddish language with its incredible contributions to mainstream modern culture.

This hands-on course emphasizes the humor and depth of the Yiddish Culture and encourages the course participants to personally engage in the material.

 “It has been an honor and a privilege to learn the Yiddish language and Yiddish culture, in your class. The classes have been delightful, nostalgic and meaningful…You added Yiddish music, poetry, comedy, art and history to enrich the curriculum. Thank you for your work, effort and dedication in preserving Yiddish for this generation and for future generations.”
