Yiddish Farm Winter Ulpan

This program combines rigorous classroom instruction with Columbia faculty as well as Yiddish-immersion activities with the Yiddish Farm staff. While students are not in class, they prepare meals, take care of the animals and enjoy games, campfires, Yiddish movies and meals among fluent Yiddish-speakers. By using Yiddish constantly, students  absorb the language more effectively.

 

No prior Yiddish knowledge is required.
