The world's first Yiddish museum, the Yiddish Book Center is home to extensive exhibits on Yiddish and Jewish culture. We will be opening our new, permanent exhibition Yiddish: A Global Culture on October 15, 2023. Surveying literature, theater, the press, and the visual arts, Yiddish: A Global Culture puts Yiddish at the heart of the modern Jewish story and of world culture and politics.
