write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has

RE: Contemporary Yiddish writers from Central, Eastern Europe by Gerben 

One of the most prominent authors from the former USSR writing in Yiddish 
(now based in Israel) is Michael (Mikhoel) Felsenbaum. He's very prolific, 
writing novels, short sroties, dramas and poems/songs, and has 
encyclopaedic knowledge of Yiddish and yiddishkayt. The late Dr. Joseph 
Sherman started working on the translation into English of M. Felsenbaum's 
latest novel, Shabesdike Shvebelekh, but sadly passed away before it was 
completed. The first three chapters in English can be found in The Mendele

Please do not use the "reply" key when writing to Mendele. Instead, direct 
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:
mendele at mailman.yale.edu
