Fellowship & Summer Program: Yiddish Book Center

Deadline: January 4, 2013

The Yiddish Book Center is once again offering two exciting educational opportunities: the Fellowship Program for recent college graduates and the Steiner Summer Yiddish Program for undergraduates.

The Fellowship Program offers recent college graduates who are passionate about Yiddish language and culture the opportunity to work at the Center for a year (September through August). As paid full-time staff members, fellows work with existing programs and take a central role in new initiatives in the areas of books and digital collections, oral history, education and outreach, and more. Applicants should have a strong background in Jewish studies or related fields and a working knowledge of Yiddish. Application deadline: January 4, 2013. For more information, please visit http://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/fellowship-program.

The Steiner Summer Yiddish Program offers current college students a unique opportunity for a tuition-free, seven-week intensive course in Yiddish language and culture. Beginning and intermediate students will engage in language study, and will also explore the history, literature, culture, and music of the Jews of Central and Eastern Europe. No prior knowledge of Yiddish required. Six college credits available. Program dates: June 9-July 26, 2013. Application deadline: February 10, 2013.
