Shabbat Service and Cultural Program
English has been immensely enriched with words borrowed from Yiddish. We all use them almost without being aware of it. This interactive program will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you know more Yiddish than you think. The presenter will be Bennett Muraskin, a familiar speaker to TCC audiences over the years.
Bennett is the adult education director for the Jewish Cultural School and Society in West Orange, NJ. and has spoken widely on Jewish topics. He is regular columnist for Jewish Currents and Outlook magazines and has written three books: Humanist Readings in Jewish Folklore (2001), Let Justice Well Up Like Water: Progressive Jews from Hillel to Helen Suzman (2005) and The Association of Jewish Libraries Guide to Yiddish Short Stories (2011). He works as a union representative for state college/university faculty, librarians and professional staff in NJ.
