Learning Jewish languages provides vital and unique bridges between today and our beginnings as a people; between ourselves and the Bible which is the source of our destiny. It also provides universal inspiration, spiritual uplift and ethical values plus a picture of Jewish life throughout the ages. Learning the language likewise connects us to modern Israel,widening our understanding of all its aspects.
The learning of Yiddish also links us to our ancestors in Eastern Europe and throws light on the life and culture of those who lived,often under terrible conditions, but found comfort in Yiddish culture, its humour and its wonderful songs – the very essence of their lives.
For those who have no time for regular weekly studies we offer cultural events, book launches, debates, trips of Jewish interest, and films. Join us and discover the richness of the Jewish experience over millennia dealing also with current Jewish and Israeli topics in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We are open to all!
