Yiddish Summer Weimar 2012: Ashkenaz I, Chapter 2


We're excited to announce that the year 2012 will see the premiere of our first 3-week intensive Weimar Yiddish Language Program. Three week-long consecutive courses will be offered by world-renowned teachers:
> Beginners: July 21-28, 2012, with Dorothea Greve, Hamburg
> Intermediate: July 30 - August 5, 2012, with Yuri Vedenyapin, Harvard University, USA
> Advanced Seminar: August 7 -14, 2012, with  Prof. Dr. Shimen Neuberg, Trier

In 2012 for the first time in Weimar you can come and study Yiddish for 3 ½  weeks – with some of the best teachers and scholars in the world – including a fascinating cultural program (Yiddish Summer Weimar) with evening sessions, concerts and other activities.
The beginners and intermediate course are meant to be consecutive, meaning that you can do them one after the other (if you work hard). More information on the topic of the advanced seminar with Prof. Dr. Shimen Neuberg will be posted soon. 

PLEASE NOTE: To make this consecutive program possible, the intermediate class is now scheduled for the week following the beginning class. There will be no intermediate class during the week of July 21-28.

For the first time in Weimar, we are offering a workshop aimed at children, but not only! Children's Songs presents Yiddish and some parallel German children's songs for the Young and the Young at Heart. Taught by Dr. Diana Matut, from the University of Halle. More information coming soon.  Dates: August 6-10, 2012
