NATIONAL YIDDISH BOOK CENTER
February 14, 2011

I discovered the National Yiddish Book Center as a young professional taking Yiddish lessons. I attended their 1 week "camp" for adults about 1990 and had a tremendous experience learning about Yiddish and my cultural heritage. So when I was planning my wedding in 1991, I requested donations to the Book Center in lieu of wedding presents and thereby many family and friends got"plugged in" to this remarkable organization .
THe NYBC has done an enormous job of helping to rescue a language considered headed for extinction , exploring and celebrating its cultural heritage past and present, as well as doing ground-breaking work in preserving and digitalizing the Yiddish lworld literature. What they have achieved with Yiddish is unique and sets a standard for other languages and cultures to learn from.
