In this class, students will read pieces of Yiddish theater aloud together. The teacher will speak in Yiddish, providing dramaturgy and historical context, and students will be encouraged to discuss the material using as much Yiddish as they can. Grammatical topics will be addressed as they arise in our texts. This will be a great opportunity to improve speaking and reading literacy as well as to develop familiarity with Yiddish
theatre and the historical and cultural contexts in which it was produced.
Materials: Provided by instructor.
Instructor: Zissel Piazza
