Dear Mendl, Dear Reyzl: Yiddish Letter Manuals from Russia and America
Jan 8, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| 10, 7 for students
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
