Yiddishkeit Series

The Yiddishkeit series’ final program takes us from the early 1900s to the present day through the “The Bintl Brief,” an advice column published in the Yiddish newspaper, The Forward.

Chana Pollack, the archivist of The Forward, explains the important role that this column played in the life of Eastern European Jews as their families acclimated to the new world of America.

Advice was offered on financial problems, domestic squabbles, incorrigible children, and ways to maintain Judaic traditions while becoming an American. The counseling from a hundred years ago still rings true today. Yiddishkeit is alive and well at The Forward as Chana’s presentation makes clear and serves as the perfect conclusion to our series of programs.
