Congregation Etz Chaim of DuPage County

Senior Sponsored Lunch and Learn Program "Oy Vey and Beyond"

Oy Vey and Beyond: Jewish English

David Fried (son of Judy and Jack Fried) has developed a short class called Oy Vey And Beyond: Jewish English. He will briefly explain the nature of Jewish English, and teach a treasure of Jewish English phrases. Jewish English is not Hebrew. It’s not a creole, nor a dialect. It is a unique way Jewish people communicate - often reflecting the feeling of having one's feet in two worlds, with two words for everything. A lively and casual class, suitable for all ages, taught in English. No previous Yiddish/Hebrew required.

Please RSVP to Mark Turner at [email protected] or call the office at 630.627.3912 by April 15th, and indicate whether or not you will be ordering a lox and bagel lunch. If you need to cancel, kindly inform Mark by the 15th as well.

Lunch is $10.
