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.


This course is suitable for students who just learned the alef-beys and are in the beginning of their Yiddish journey, as well as experienced speakers who wish to get a structured vision of the Yiddish grammar. This course will provide the foundation to prepare those who want to move on to the Yiddish for intermediate course. Using a variety of materials, we will cover basic Yiddish language rules, read texts and complete practice exercises as a group. Students will be expected to complete supplemental practice exercises at home with the goal of reinforcing the in-person learnings. By the end of the course, you will know present, past, and future tenses, declination of nouns, articles, and adjectives, negation of verbs, relative sentences, and more.
