Its been a rizike arbet--a Herculean task--to create a definitive new textbook from scratch. Asya Vaisman Schulman, director of the Yiddish Book Centers Yiddish Language Institute and editor of In eynem: A New Yiddish Textbook, assembled a talented team of fellows, editors, designers, illustrators, and academic advisors, and after many years of dauntless effort the book will be ready for the fall 2020 academic year. In a lively presentation, Asya will share whats inside this new textbook--from its contemporary design, full-color art and illustrations, and recurring characters that reflect the diversity of Yiddish speakers today, to its communicative approach. |
