Yidishfest 02, 05, 06 December 2021

For many hundreds of years, Yiddish has been the foundation of a rich and diverse culture that has spawned a unique Jewish identity. This language and creativity in it became one of the pillars of the national existence of the majority of Jews in Europe, and in the 19th-20th centuries spread to almost all continents. The Yiddish civilization reached its maximum flourishing in the vast expanses of the then empires & ndash; Russian and Austro-Hungarian, interacting with the languages ​​and cultures of the surrounding peoples. This unique cultural fusion formed the basis of a great spiritual heritage that we call Yiddish.
