New Class!
With the exception of Sholem Aleichem and IB Singer, few Yiddish writers are familiar to American readers. But recent translations into English have made more and more Yiddish writing available to non-Yiddish speakers. 
Four classes in March will examine and discuss Yiddish fiction written in the late 19th and 20th centuries. 
Classes meet 4 Mondays, March 2, 9, 16 & 23 from 2-4 pm at the JCC
Location: Jewish Community Center, 1301 Farmers Lane, Santa Rosa, 95405

The event will include musical performances and the traditional candle-lighting ceremony by Holocaust survivors including those representing the Roma, Gays & Lesbians, Disabled, Righteous Gentiles, and Political Prisoners, as well as all those targeted by genocide worldwide. Winners of the Annual Holocaust Essay Contest for middle and high school students will read excerpts from their essays. Middle and high school students who would like to submit essays can get more information here

All are welcome and admission is free.
