In the first part of our show, hear Dovid Braun talk about the amazing 2020 YIVO Yiddish Summer Program, interviewed by Sholem Beinfeld. And in the last part of the show, hear Sholem Beinfeld read and interpret selections from the book יידישע שפּריכווערטער און רעדענסארטען (Yidishe Shprikhverter un Redensartn), by Ignats Bernshteyn, originally published in Warsaw in 1908, likely the largest collection of Yiddish proverbs ever assembled.
Dovid Braun is the Academic Director of the intensive U. Weinreich Summer Program in Yiddish Language, Literature and Culture of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.
Sholem Beinfeld is Professor of History (Emeritus) at Washington University (St. Louis) as well as Co-Chief Editor of the Comprehensive Yiddish-English Dictionary.
