What is the Yiddish Book Center? Well, we’re not really a library, or a bookstore (though we’ve got one of those). And though we offer a lot of educational programs we aren’t, strictly speaking, a school. Maybe the best way to get an idea of who we are is to take a tour of the Center and see all of the things we do. That’s something best done in person, but like everything else these days, you can do it virtually as well.
