YIDDISH IN THE HEIGHTS: EXPLORING YIDDISH ACADEMIA AND ACTIVISM IN POST-WAR NEW YORK

November 20 and 21, 2022

Sunday, November 20, 1:30–7:30 p.m., at JTS
Monday, November 21, 8:30 a.m.–6:30 p.m., at Columbia

Keynote Speakers: Dr. David H. Roskies and Dr. Anita Norich (Sunday)

In the post-WWII period, Jewish immigrants to the United States brought new energy to Yiddish New York, and Yiddish reached new heights in the academic world, particularly at JTS and Columbia University. A key figure in these programs was Dr. Mordkhe Schaechter, himself an immigrant, who also spearheaded a new wave of Yiddish activism. This conference will honor Dr. Schaechter by exploring his legacy at the two Morningside Heights institutions with which he was affiliated, as well as the place of Yiddish in American academia—its past, the current state of the field, and its future—set against a larger Jewish-American context.

The conference will be bilingual (English and Yiddish).

Proceedings will be recorded and available following the conclusion of the conference.

The conference is co-sponsored by JTS, the League for Yiddish, and the Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies of Columbia University.
