Yiddish Reading Group: The Book of Paradise

Boston Workmen's Circle

A Yiddish reading group that meets at Boston Workmen’s Circle is inviting new members. The group has just starting reading Itsik Manger’s “The Book of Paradise” in Yiddish. The book is written in relatively simple Yiddish - a story of an angel forced to leave Gan-Eden to become human.

The Yiddish text is available for free download from the National Yiddish Book Center. There is also an English translation, copies are available on Amazon and other used book sites.

The group reads at a leisurely pace, 5 to 9 pages/week. 

The group meets Thursdays from 7:30 to 9 pm. If you would like more information about the group you can write to Mark Stewart madestew@gmail.com or call him at 617-710-2447.
