MENDELE Yiddish Language and Literature
Personal Notices and Announcements

April 10, 2009

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Sheva Zucker, whose credentials hardly need to be spelled out to 
Mendelyaner, will deliver two lectures in this year's program co-sponsored 
by the Judaic Studies Program at Yale and the Yale-New Haven Yiddish 
Reading Circle. Starting this year, these annual lectures will honor the 
memory of a most worthy eponym, Sid Resnick, for many years the epicenter 
of the *leyen krayz* at Yale.

On Tuesday, April 14, 4:30pm in WLH 120, Sheva Zucker will speak (in 
English) on

"The Upside Down World of Birobidzhan:
Impressions of a Trip to the Jewish Autonomous Region in Russia"

On Wednesday, April 15, Noon-1:20pm, at the Slifka Center, 80 Wall St., 
2nd floor (chapel), she will speak (in Yiddish) on

"Tshing Tshang Tshu, Yidn in Shankhay beys der tsveyter velt-milkhome"
