Yiddish Reading/Conversation Workshops
Our beginning Yiddish classes will continue in late October, but to bridge the gap, we will offer 3 Yiddish reading/conversation workshops, open to all.

They will be Tuesday evenings, 7:00-8:30pm, September 10, 17, and 24, at Congregation Brith Shalom.

Please RSVP to

Yiddish 102: A Beginning Language Class

Where: Congregation Brith Shalom, 4610 Bellaire Blvd

CBS and Yiddish bay Nakht present a continuation of our successful beginning Yiddish class. New students who are able to read and write with the Yiddish alef-beys are invited. (Email to verify your knowledge level.)


The Yiddish 102 class will be taught remotely by Noah "Noyekh" Barrera.  
Noah Barrera is a Yiddish educator, translator, and writer. He is currently the Yiddish Coordinator at the Workmen's Circle in New York. Noah has taught in the YIVO-Bard Summer Program. His writings have appeared in the Yiddish Forverts and Afn Shvel. His academic translation of Abraham Rechtman’s memoir, Yidishe etnografye un folklor, which describes in detail Sh. An-sky’s Jewish Ethnographic Expedition, is soon to be published by Indiana University Press. He is currently writing his first Yiddish novella, Der nekhtiker tegnik (The Grave Whisperer), which is running as a serial in the Forverts.

Students will meet at Congregation Brith Shalom, and Noah Barrera will teach via high quality Internet audiovisual connection. Michael Moore and Zack Sher of Yiddish bay Nakht will be the local classroom facilitators and tutors.
