Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

Feb. 14, 2018

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at as plain text (no
HTML, other  coding, or attachments) and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the
subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has posted
the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

YIVO Summer Program 50th Anniversary – Tuition now $2,000!

Join us for the 2018 Uriel Weinreich Summer Program in Yiddish Language,
Literature, and Culture, now celebrating its 50th anniversary. To mark half
a century of Yiddish study in NYC, we’ve lowered tuition this year to
$2,000! This year will focus on ‘Yiddish New York’—join us as we explore
the Yiddish theater, Yiddish press, and the great Yiddish writers who
called New York home at YIVO’s headquarters in the heart of New York City.

Our 2018 faculty includes Anna Gonshor, Josh Karlip, Chava Lapin, Paula
Teitelbaum, Sheva Zucker, and we are thrilled to welcome Dovid Braun and
Anita Norich to the faculty this year. Don’t miss the financial aid
deadline of February 23rd! The deadline for general applicants is April
2nd. Visit us at
 to learn more and fill out
your application.

We hope to receive your application soon!
