The Center for Judaic Studies at UConn sponsors a monthly luncheon discussion group in the Yiddish language, led by founding Director Arnold Dashefsky. These discussions provide an opportunity to practice listening and speaking skills in an informal manner.
The Yiddish Tish is a small, intimate gathering of members from the community and campus, and all reading and speaking levels are welcome! We continue to attract new members interested in attending and welcome you to join us to sustain our enthusiasm!
Please bring a bag lunch, and we will provide dessert and drinks.
