This symposium seeks to uncover the often hidden history of Yiddish life in the Midwest which, while it mirrored Jewish communities in larger cities, took on a unique character all its own. Delving into this history is a fascinating and under appreciated facet of the global Midwest. This day-long event features presentation on Yiddish culture in the upper Midwest and community oral history panels. This event is free and open to the public.
