Renew Your Membership for 2018

Al-regl-akhes, in a word, the Center is booming. When we began in 1980, Jewish leaders routinely insisted that Yiddish was dead and dismissed everything we were trying to do. Now many are approaching us, looking for cultural content that will engage a new generation who, increasingly, want to understand who they are and where they come from. 

As a result, we are forging partnerships to bring the books and other cultural treasures you’ve helped save to more people than ever before. In 2018, we'll be working with a number of other major organizations to reach beyond our walls to create a Universal Yiddish Library, and provide access to Jewish literature and educational programs for all ages.

Please—won't you help us continue all this exciting work by renewing your membership today?
