IMPORTANT PROGRAM INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19:
We hope to conduct the final week of the 2021 Great Jewish Books Summer Program in-person at the Yiddish Book Center. However, due to the uncertain nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, a residential program may not be possible. If that is the case, the final week of the program will be held online. We will inform students of the final course format (part-online/part-residential or fully online) upon acceptance. In the meantime, please see our FAQ for more information regarding Great Jewish Books’ possible remote learning adaptation.
