Join us for an inside look at “In eynem”, the Yiddish Book Center's new Yiddish textbook for beginners, which has been called a "revolution in Yiddish language pedagogy." Asya Vaisman Schulman, director of the Center's Yiddish Language Institute and lead author of “In eynem”, will talk with the Center's academic director, Mindl Cohen, about how the textbook combines multimedia resources, full-color illustrations, and cutting-edge pedagogical techniques to create a living, vibrant Yiddishland in the classroom. Co-authors Jordan Brown and Mikhl Yashinsky will join the conversation to talk about how the book threads together authentic Yiddish cultural texts from all aspects in the language's rich history, along with dialogues and exercises featuring a cast of characters from every corner of the contemporary Yiddish-speaking world. And special guest Lorin Sklamberg will bring to life some of the book's most engaging and singable resources.
This live event will be presented via Zoom and will stream live on the Yiddish Book Center's Facebook page. Space is limited. If you’d like to reserve a virtual seat in the Zoom audience—which will allow you to submit questions—registration is required.
