Introduction to Yiddish, with Ilana Goldberg
Kick start your Yiddish learning with this four-week, beginning course, April 3 – 24! This program series is an ideal starting point for new students’ Yiddish journeys, or as a refresher course for those who have some Yiddish already and want to revisit the fundamentals. Topics will include:
A brief historical and linguistic context of the Yiddish language
The Yiddish alphabet and how it differs from Hebrew
Greetings and daily idioms
Basic verbs and their conjugations
Instructor Ilana Goldberg was born and raised in Berkeley, and has a great love for the Bay Area Jewish community. She has studied Yiddish with YIVO, the Yiddish Book Center curriculum, and, like many twenty-somethings, a healthy dose of DuoLingo. In 2022, Ilana taught Yiddish at Congregation Shalom in Massachusetts, while continuing her own Yiddish-learning journey. When she is not studying or teaching Yiddish, Ilana teaches Hebrew and Judaics at Beth El’s afterschool programs.
