Students in this section will continue reading an abridged and annotated version of Motl Peyse dem Khazns by Sholem Aleichem, starting in chapter 5. By reading aloud, using the book’s exercises, and discussion, students will have a chance to strengthen their Yiddish reading, vocabulary, grammar and conversation skills. There’ll also be time for general conversation practice and learning through songs.
Level: Continuing students and new students who can read Yiddish with the help of a dictionary. The first class will include a review of characters and plot in Motl Peyse if there are new students.
Materials: New students should purchase Motl Peyse dem Khazns, available at League for Yiddish or at other online sites.
Instructor: Jonah Sidman
