add this shiur

Course Description

Yiddish means, literally, “Jewish”. No wonder this was the language spoken by Ashkenazi Jews in many parts of the world. In this course we will learn the fundamentals of Yiddish: the alphabet, key verbs (and conjugation patterns), key nouns, important phrases and essential grammar. At the end of the course the student is expected to be able to read Yiddish texts, understanding a great part of it and being able to find in the dictionary unknown words.
