Yiddish Book Center, Online

March 23 - April 5

What to do while you’re stuck at home? Learn or practice your Yiddish of course! We’ve got lots of exercises on our site to help you along—whether you’re a beginner or want some practice. Get started with the alphabet yiddishbookcenter.org/…/learn-yiddish-a…/how-use-these-pages or brush up with these fun homework exercises, complete with lively illustrations by Alexander Vaisman: yiddishbookcenter.org/language-literatur…/heymarbet-homework.

In these times of ‘social distancing,’ music can lift our spirits and help us feel connected. We’ve got many music-related items throughout our collections—here are just a few: “An Evening of Music: The Art of Yiddish Song,” an audio recording in English and Yiddish from our Francis Brandt Online Yiddish Audio Library—yiddishbookcenter.org/…/fbr-…/evening-music-art-yiddish-song.

We’re also sharing a collection of oral history interviews with some of the musicians of Yidstock. It’s always wonderful to hear them talk about their creative work and process. yiddishbookcenter.org/…/wexler-oral-hist…/yidstock-musicians

Search our collections for more oral histories, audio recordings, and music-related content!

This might be what we need right now… Recipes to lift the spirits and help us feel connected—some simple, some not so much. While we know not everyone may have ingredients for these recipes in their pantry right now, if you’re anything like us, sometimes just looking at pictures of delicious food can provide a nice distraction.
