About the Decade of Discovery

The Decade of Discovery is a new initiative of the Yiddish Book Center designed to foster a deeper understanding of Yiddish and modern Jewish culture. Beginning with the Center’s 40th anniversary in 2020, and continuing for each of the next ten years, the Center will select an annual theme around which we will hold special events, courses, conferences, exhibits, performances and other programs, often in partnership with other organizations. In doing so, we will create new relationships with individuals and institutions to expand and strengthen engagement with Yiddish and modern Jewish culture. Through this initiative we seek to create a space for collaboration, testing of ideas, and the discovery of new perspectives.

In the coming months we'll be announcing plans for 2020 programming. 

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