Workmen’s Circle Across America: Northern California WC/AR secures a Yiddish Culture Course at San Francisco State University
An exciting aspect of my work as Executive Director is the opportunity to support the work of our activists around the country. I am happy to be able to share with you wonderful news from our Northern California WC/AR community, where the vision and support of our local leadership has brought Yiddish Studies to San Francisco State University. SFSU’s Department of Jewish Studies will be offering a new Yiddish culture course this Spring. The course on Yiddish History, Literature and Culture, was designed by the SFSU Jewish Studies faculty, is open to SFSU students as part of their regular studies program, as well as open to community residents over 50 through the SFSU Center for Extended Learning Elder College program. This course is particularly accessible to residents of San Francisco and the Peninsula. We congratulate WC/AR activist Diana Scott and members of Northern California WC/AR, whose vision and encouragement is bringing Yiddish Studies to San Francisco!
