The Yiddish Book Center's Decade of Discovery 2022

Decade of Discovery: Women in Yiddish

The Decade of Discovery is an initiative launched by the Yiddish Book Center to mark our 40th anniversary in 2020. Its aim is to foster a deeper understanding of Yiddish and modern Jewish culture. For each of the ensuing years, the Center will select an annual theme around which we will curate and share content and collaborate with other organizations. 

Our focus for 2022 is Women in Yiddish, and we invite you to join us for the wide range of virtual public programs and curated content we will be offering around this theme. 

The Yiddish Book Center's Decade of Discovery is made possible in part by a grant from the Leona and Ralph W. Kern Foundation.

Decade of Discovery: Read / Listen / Watch

In honor of our Decade of Discovery theme for 2022, "Women in Yiddish," we're featuring items from our collections that highlight the many women Yiddish writers, actors, musicians, activists, and artists who have contributed to all aspects of  Yiddish culture.
