Description Miriam Udel, author and associate professor of German Studies and Jewish Studies at Emory University, will join the Yiddish Tish Friday, November 20. The Tish meets on Fridays at noon and is open to the public for Yiddish readers/speakers of all levels. The Tish is currently reading Chaver Paver’s "Labzik," a middle-grade children’s novel about a leftist dog in New York during the Great Depression. During the Tish participants read the text out loud in Yiddish, translate the text into English, and then discuss the text in Yiddish. For a Zoom invitation, please contact the Tish organizer, Jessica Kirzane, assistant professorial instructor for Yiddish at the University of Chicago, at jkirzane@uchicago.edu.
