YIDDISH CLUB

The Yiddish Club of Leisure World was established 10 years ago for the purpose of preserving the Yiddish culture, including the Yiddish tongue, which was spoken by 12 million Ashkenazi Jews for more than 1,000 years.
The last words pronounced by most victims of the Holocaust before they were killed were in Yiddish. It is important to preserve this warm, rich and expressive Yiddish language, so not to forget the Holocaust, to remember and honor the victims.
The club achieves this goal by introducing new Yiddish words and proverbs at every meeting. Club members review classical Yiddish writers and poets, recite their work, sing famous Yiddish folk songs, and show Yiddish movies and plays.
The joy, pleasure and enthusiasm of members attest to how
important and vital this club is in Leisure World.
