Students in this section will continue reading an abridged and annotated version of Motl Peyse dem Khazns by Sholem Aleichem, starting with chapter 4. 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 and who want guided reading and grammar/vocabulary/reading comprehension exercises. The first class will include a review of characters and plot in Motl Peyse as a summary for new students and a refresher for continuing students.
Materials: New students should purchase Motl Peyse dem Khazns, available at League for Yiddish or at other on-line sites.
Instructor: Jonah Sidman
