About the Event

Yiddish has been rapidly gaining prominence across the world.  Professorships and university programs are increasing, and major  universities are now offering Yiddish for fulfillment of the language  requirement.  Yiddish classes at all levels, live and online, are  offered by organizations such as YIVO, the Workers Circle, and the Paris  Yiddish Institute, to name only a few.  Klezmer groups and choirs draw  large audiences, as do performances on stage and in film. Lectures in  and about Yiddish are increasingly popular, and audiences have greatly  increased thanks to Zoom.  Professor Mallow will present examples of  each, and more.

Jeffry  V. Mallow is Professor Emeritus of Physics, Loyola University Chicago  and Affiliate Professor, University of Haifa. He is a member of the  Forward Association, publisher of The Forward and Der Forverts and honorary  chair of the Chicago YIVO Society. A graduate of the Workers Circle Yiddish  schools, he was Director of Jewish Culture at its Camp Kinder Ring. Among his publications are the Jewish humor book Our Pal God and a collection of his political essays, Zionist Diarist.
