Summer Yiddish Program in Lithuania

The 2008 Vilnius Summer Program in Yiddish

Vilnius, Lithuania; 7/27/2008 - 8/22/2008

The four-week annual European Summer Program in Yiddish was founded by Professor Dovid Katz at Oxford in 1982 and transferred to Vilnius in 1998. Since 2001, it has been an integral part of the Vilnius Yiddish Institute at Vilnius University. The program is internationally known for superb academic instruction and a rich program of cultural events. An unmatchable flavor derives from its location in the heart of the city famed in history as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. The program offers four courses in Yiddish language and literature, ranging from beginners to advanced. The cultural program offers a broad array of activities designed to acquaint participants with modern Yiddish civilization. This year the Summer Program celebrates its 10th anniversary in Vilnius.
