Yiddish Classes On-Line –

Introduction to Yiddish Language and Culture I, II, and III

The Dora Teitelboim Institute for Yiddish Education has launched the first Yiddish On-Line college level program in the world.  Registration for the course begins immediately.

The course is accessible to students anywhere in the world via the Internet.  Three semesters of Yiddish education are available from beginner to intermediate levels.

Course Details:

Introduction to Yiddish Language and Culture I and II are college level courses geared for both college students as well as students of all ages with little or no background in Yiddish. Students with some background in Yiddish can use this course to burnish their skills. The Course includes Yiddish conversation, the alef-beys (Yiddish alphabet), reading and writing.  Students will also learn Yiddish songs, poetry and literature.  Yiddish III is geared to students with knowledge of basic Yiddish grammar, conversation, and writing or those who have already completed Yiddish I and II.  The course uses Sheva Zucker’s book, “Yiddish, Introduction to the Language, Literature & Culture Vol. I”.

All registered students will also have access to an on-line Yiddish adjunct course that provides practice lessons in Yiddish conversation, writing, and reading through self-quizzes, extra lessons and games.


The course is taught by Professor Mindelle Wajsman, a professor of Yiddish for over twenty years at Case Western University, the College of Jewish Studies and the I.L. Peretz Schools.
