Through examination of their lives and works, students will see how they transposed Yiddish from the vernacular to an independent medium in all modes of intellectual and artistic expression. This course will run every Thursday from 10-11:30 am starting October 14th, 2021, until October 28th, 2021. Cost is $28. To register, visit cummingscentre.org/registration or call 514.343.3510.
