The Steiner Summer Yiddish Program at the Yiddish Book Center offers college students a tuition-free, seven-week exploration of Yiddish language and culture. The program runs from June 9-July 26, 2013. Six undergraduate college credits will be available through the University of Massachusetts. Limited housing subsidies are available, based on need. The 2013 Steiner Summer Yiddish Program is open to all full-time college students under the age of 26, who are either at the beginning or in the second year of their Yiddish language studies
The goal of the program is to provide a new generation with:
  • Yiddish language literacy
