More than 80 leading figures in Yiddish culture are on the faculty, and lectures/workshops are held daily at the 14th Street Y in everything from klezmer music to Yiddish theater, history, literature, films, walking tours, Yiddish lessons and a wonderful kids/teens program. A number of prominent folklorists/scholars working with Yiddish culture are featured. Evening events feature concerts, folk dancing, jam sessions and more!
