Leitmotif: winter holiday!

Warsaw Yiddishists cannot wait any longer until our traditional summer seminar, so they want to spend also winter holidays together with you! Thanks to online teaching we will be able to meet our friends from all around the world and learn Yiddish during language classes and special events. Through the lectures and workshops you will not only immerse yourself in the history of Jewish holidays as well as the language and culture of Ashkenazi Jews, but also just to… relax from the comfort of your own home!
