Dear Friends of YAAANA and Yiddishland California,

We are very busy this summer at virtual Yiddishland!  This Friday at 12.30 p.m. PT, on Zoom, we will have our conversational Yiddish for Beginners class—and yes! you can join if you missed previous sessions.

Additionally, we are delighted to announce a new Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) Zoom course for the summer. The course is based on Sephardic tales that students will read in the Latin alphabet. We will also practice speaking skills and provide optional short writing tasks. Elements of the Hebrew Rashi script will be included as well. This course is appropriate for people with basic knowledge of Ladino or Spanish. The course is scheduled to start on Tuesday, July 16th, and early bird pricing is available until Tuesday, July 7th. The schedule is somewhat flexible if needed.

If you are interested in other levels of Yiddish or Ladino classes, or in learning Hebrew, contact us and we will do our best to help!

Wishing you a festive summer solstice,

Jana and the teams of YAAANA and Yiddishland California,
