Dear Yiddish Enthusiasts,
We are (literally) taking our Yiddish classes to the next level!
Are you interested in learning how to write/speak/read in Yiddish? The Yiddish Arts and Academics Association of North America (YAAANA) is welcoming our new Yiddish lecturer, Dr. Tanya Yakovleva!
Dr. Tanya Yakovleva, originally from Ukraine, lived and studied in Germany, Italy, and the United States. She recently completed her Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Regensburg, and is an affiliate scholar at the UC San Diego. The main topic of her academic work is Odessa in Russian-Jewish literature. Since starting to learn Yiddish in Regensburg (one of the possible birthplaces of this language!), Tanya fell in love with it and decided to bring her passion to both academic and non-academic spheres.
Tanya is interested in teaching Yiddish language/culture classes at all levels. Please send your class requests to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Times and locations will be arranged based on our students’ needs.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
The YAAANA team
