Do You Speak Jewish?
Dr. Dina Maiben
Tuesday, January 19, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm US ET

As Jewish communities spread to the four corners of the earth, they adopted and adapted the languages of their host countries.  Some of the Jewish languages, like Yiddish and Ladino, are well known.  Others, like Haketia, Yavanit, Juhri, Italkian, and Judeo-Malayalam are less familiar.  Gratz College’s resident linguist, Dr. Dina Maiben, will discuss the fascinating phenomenon of Jewish languages, with special emphasis on Hebrew, Yiddish and Ladino.
