by | Sep 16, 2013 | What’s Happening

Tuesday, Sept. 24, 11 am

Mindle Crystel Gross, a teacher of conversational Yiddish, will be the featured speaker at The Yiddish Club at the Simon Family JCC. This meeting is open to everyone, Yiddish club members and nonmembers, Yiddish speakers, and those who speak none at all. A light brunch will be served.

A graduate of Sholom Aleykhem Yiddish School, and a bilingual secretary for Farband Labor Zionist Order and Workman’s Circle, Gross has translated Yiddish for movies, books, letters and personal items. Highly regarded as a Yiddish translator, Gross will speak about her many experiences with Yiddish, as well as share a DVD about the translation of a long forgotten book about the Holocaust.
