The Steiner Summer Program at the Yiddish Book Center offers college students a tuition-free, seven-week immersion in Yiddish language and culture.

The goal of the program is to provide a new generation with:

  • Yiddish language literacy
  • Substantive knowledge of the history, literature, and culture of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe and beyond
  • Practical models for preservation, research, translation, and artistic expression

Six undergraduate college credits will be available through the University of Massachusetts. Limited housing subsidies are available, based on need. The 2012 Steiner Summer Program runs from Sunday, June 10, to Friday, July 27, and is open to all full-time university students. Please note: Students who are not enrolled in a degree-granting program as of January 1, 2012 are not eligible.


Apply by February 1 for Summer 2012.

The Steiner Summer Program at the Yiddish Book Center is made possible through the generosity of David and Sylvia Steiner and the support of a small group of sponsors.
