Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

May 14, 2010

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;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Re: Call for papers on teaching of Yiddish in the 21st century

Call for papers for a session at the Association for Jewish Studies
conference, December 2010 in Boston, on the teaching of Yiddish language 
in the 21st century, including a consideration of new and renewed 
textbooks, such as the planned revised edition of Uriel Weinreich's 
College Yiddish, pedagogical methods, and contemporary media  materials.
If you are interested in participating, please contact me  (contact

your mail as follows:

Material for Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements, i.e. announcements 
of events, commercial publications, requests to which responses should be 
sent exclusively to the request's author, etc., always in plain text (no 
HTML or the like) to:

    victor.bers at yale.edu (in the subject line write Mendele Personal)

Material for postings to Mendele Yiddish literature and language, i.e. 
inquiries and comments of a non-commercial or publicity nature:

IMPORTANT:  Please include your full name as you would like it to appear 
in your posting.  No posting will appear without its author's name. 
Submissions to regular Mendele should not include personal email 
addresses, as responses will be posted for all to read.  They must also 
include the author's name as you would like it to appear.

In order to spare the shamosim time and effort, we request that 
contributors adhere, when applicable, as closely as possible to standard 
English punctuation, grammar, etc. and to the YIVO rules of 
transliteration into Latin letters. A guide to Romanization can be found 
at this site:

All other messages should be sent to the shamosim at this address:
