Bringing to Light Yiddish Women Writers, with Faith Jones

A Live, Online Event Recorded Via Zoom on March 25, 2021

Over the past ten years, many misconceptions about Yiddish-speaking women have been overturned—particularly regarding women in the literary world. Whether in terms of how many women wrote, what they wrote, how they were viewed, or what their purpose may have been, our knowledge of women as writers and editors is sharply different now than it once was. In this program, librarian and translator Faith Jones discusses some of the interesting new developments and discoveries in the world of women and Yiddish.

We present regular live virtual programs on a range of topics related to Yiddish and modern Jewish literature and culture. You’ll find the full schedule and event listings at
