Yiddish Torah Study
Yiddish Torah Study is meeting online on Sundays at 2pm. Please contact Marianne Tatom to receive a meeting invitation to our virtual “beys medrash.” Weekly readings are updated below.
Yiddish Torah study (in English) — Harvey Niebulski, Marianne Tatom and others will facilitate a discussion of the weekly (triennial) Parsha based upon the once famous comprehensive masterpiece but now nearly forgotten Yiddish translation of the Tanakh by Yehoash (the pen name of Solomon Blumgarten, 1872-1927). All are welcome, regardless of language skills! For a review of this magnum opus translation by Yehoash versus Robert Alter’s recent acclaimed English translation, visit: https://ingeveb.org/blog/yehoash-and-alter-tanakh
