Storrs Campus

The Yiddish Tish luncheon discussion group is a small, intimate gathering of members from the community and campus who meet monthly to read and speak Yiddish, discuss new topics, and spend time with one another. Sponsored by the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life and led by founding Director Arnold Dashefsky, the Yiddish Tish was launched in 1982 and is now in its 76th semester.

We continue to attract new colleagues interested in attending and welcome you to join us to sustain our enthusiasm. These sessions are open to any and all faculty, staff, students, and members of the community. All reading and speaking levels are welcome!

Please bring a bag lunch, and we will provide dessert and drinks.

The Spring 2020 sessions will be held in the Dodd Research Center in Conference Room 162 on the following Wednesdays from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm:

• February 26 • March 25 • April 29
