yiddish letter event flyer

Back when letters were lifelines, the brivnshteler, or letter-writing guide, instructed East European Jews in everything from writing skills to navigating unfamiliar social situations. Join Congregation Mount Sinai for a discussion with member Professor Alice Nakhimovsky and Roberta Newman of YIVO, who have compiled the first-ever anthology of these striking manuals. Actors will provide dramatic readings of brivnshteler samples.

$10; students $7
