If you're looking for Yiddish language classes in Boston (and beyond!), you've come to the right place. Throughout the country, Workmen’s Circle has been a leader in preserving and promoting Yiddish language and culture (Yiddishkayt). Yiddish was the language of 2.5 million Eastern European Jewish immigrants, of the Jewish labor movement and the struggle for rights, equality, and freedom. And still, today, Yiddish culture inspires popular American humor, music, language, and art. We invite you to explore this rich cultural inheritance!
Our instructors are passionate about Yiddish and are experienced educators. Whether you are a beginner, have been studying on your own on Duolingo, are a continuing student, or grew up speaking the language, we have a class that will accommodate you. Students cover a wide age range, from young adults to seniors. We offer semester-long classes across a range of levels. Students in doubt about their course level should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
