Event Details

Description

For many elderly Jews, Yiddish connects them to the rich tapestry of Yiddish literature, music, and theater. Engaging in conversations or listening to Yiddish songs and stories allows seniors to relive their past, and ensure that their cultural heritage endures.

Engaging with the language of one's youth has been shown to have several psychological benefits for seniors. It can enhance cognitive function, as using multiple languages helps keep the brain active and engaged. Moreover, it provides a sense of purpose and belonging, reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation that are common in older age.

Consider joining a fun conversational Yiddish course for your emotional well-being, memory health, and brain stimulation. The comfort of familiar words and phrases offers a timeless solace. United Jewish Generations, a Chabad organization for retirees and seniors, is offering a 5 session Conversational Yiddish Course on Zoom starting Monday, July 8th. Sign up at JewishRetiree.com or call (954) 458-6000. The course is limited to 30 participants. $50 Early-Bird Price and scholarships are available. Sign up today.

Gilda Simpkin, author of My Baby Chase and a Yiddish teacher at Norwalk Community College, will lead this Yiddish Series and will help participants converse in Yiddish during this course.
