Join us for an early evening weekly reading group studying Yehoyash’s Yiddish translation of the Tanakh, in the book of Breyshis (Genesis). Brush up on your biblical vocabulary, take a stroll down to Mitzrayim with Yosef and his brethren and shvestren, practice your reading fluency by chanting repetitive verses about the long lives of the ancestors who begat named sons and nameless daughters, and role play as an ancient sage or shtetl melamed by attempting to explain and expand upon the meanings of these ancient verses.
Level: This section is intended for continuing BWC intermediates. New students who have experience reading and speaking Yiddish within or outside of a classroom setting and who want a facilitated reading class are welcome to join. Grammar will be reviewed as it comes up in the text.
Materials: Provided by instructor.
Instructor: Abby Howell
