Taught by Katya Kuznetsova 

Ekaterina Kuznetsova was born in Moscow. There she studied Literature, Pedagogics, and Religious Studies. In 2016 she graduated from the MA program in Yiddish Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She researched the history of translations from Yiddish as well as intercultural connections in Yiddish literature. Her articles are published in Russian, Polish, Yiddish, and English. She currently lives in Berlin, where she co-founded the initiative Yiddish.Berlin – a group of artists and activists that organizes cultural events involving Yiddish literature and culture. She is a regular contributor to In Geveb journal.


In this intensive workshop on Yiddish syntax we will focus on the word order. The rule that every Yiddish student learns in the very beginning is that “a verb stands on the second place in a sentence.” But in practice there are more nuances to it. There are “zero words” that come first but do not count in the word order, there is an inversion in complex sentences, and idiomatic inversion. We will speak about the theory moving from simple to more advanced examples, and then practice with articles and texts from Yiddish literature. Each participant will receive individual feedback on their homework.
