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

2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;
and be sure to write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has

Below is a revised announcement (the prize has been changed significantly)

The CIYCL 2009-10 International Yiddish-Into-English Poetry Translation 

The California Institute for Yiddish Culture and Language (CIYCL) is 
calling all poetry mavens! Do  you have a favorite Yiddish poet or a poem 
that has yet to reach the English-speaking masses? Or have you come across 
a published translation of a wonderful Yiddish poem that perhaps mangles 
the poetic intentions of its creator? This is your chance for redemption. 
Find that very special poem that you would like shared with a much wider 
audience and make it come alive. Just as the Golem rose to life by the 
sacred words of its creator, breathe new life into your Yiddish poem of 
choice. Dazzle us with your cross-cultural understanding of the Yiddish 
and English languages. Impress us with your knowledge of the delicate 
intricacies and nuances of the mameloshn.

First place winners will be announced at the 13th IAYC Conference, April 
23-26, 2010 at the Westin Hotel in Millbrae, CA. The first place winner 
will receive $360, plus publication on the CIYCL website and newsletter. 
It also will appear in Der Bay.

Second place winners will receive $50 plus publication on our website.

This contest is sponsored by Lee Chesnin, CIYCL Board Member Stephen O. 
Lesser and IAYC.

Contest Rules: Your single entry of up to two pages must include the 
original Yiddish poem (in Yiddish characters) and your own, never before 
published English translation. Entries over the required length will be
