Jews have carried the Yiddish language to all parts of the world. During its journey, Yiddish has cultivated a rich body of literature, theatre and music. Yiddish has survived over a thousand years without a country it can call its own. The motherland for the mother tongue is the community.
The purpose of The Yiddish Vinkl is to explore and remember our roots, and to foster a deeper understanding of Yiddishkeit - the Yiddish language, culture and history. We do this by inviting guest speakers once a month, who honour our heritage and instill a love for Yiddishkeit when they share their knowledge, news or life stories. Whether they be an historian, writer, archivist, visual artist, story teller or musician, we will leave inspired and richer for the experience.
People speak primarily in English, so there is no need to understand the Mame Loshn. However if you listen carefully, perhaps you will learn some!!
