A Focus On Women Writers in Translation

Handpicked Eitan Kensky

Yiddish scholar Eitan Kensky, the Yiddish Book Center's director of collections initiatives, selected several types of media from our collections—Yiddish books, podcasts, translations, and recordings of cultural programs. "People know that we have an amazing library of digital Yiddish books. They may not know that we have everything else."
