Program on Yiddish Breaks Attendance Record
Oy! The Joy! of Yiddish Explained
Wednesday, December 20th 12:00 PM – optional lox and bagel
lunch $8.00 12:30-2:00 PM
David Fried, son of congregants Jack and Judy Fried, shares his passionate exploration into the world of Yiddish.
On Wednesday, September 13th, following the usual lox and bagel lunch, Certified Autobiography Instructor Edna Groves guided us through two writing exercises. The purpose, at this time of year which calls us to introspection, was to think about our given name, and how it has come to reflect who we are.
At first glance, this may seem to be a sweet and simple task, but when taking the time to contemplate who we were named for – in English and/or in Hebrew, Yiddish – how we feel about the name(s), our nicknames, who calls us what, etc. personal stories unfold.
The Story of Your Name
