Founded in 2017, the Yiddish Arts and Academics Association of North America (YAAANA), a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, and its cultural center, Yiddishland California, were created to educate the public about, and combat misconceptions surrounding Jewish culture and its Yiddish component. It is hard to believe, but our cultural center, Yiddishland California, has been in La Jolla Village for a little over a year. With your support, we can turn our pop-up Yiddishland into a permanent store, art gallery, cultural center, and much more. Our goal is to raise $20,000 which will cover 6 months of our basic expenses (rent, insurance, utilities). Learn more here.
The Yiddish Arts and Academics Association of North America is classified as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization by the standards of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Our EIN number is 85-2064877. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
We hope you can join us in our Journey!
