Don't know Yiddish, but speak German, am learing Dutch, & know some Hebrew. I'll mostly listen. Yiddish was my father's native language. My last name, "Shabasson," is the Yiddish for the Hebrew "Shabbaton."
This meetup is for enjoying and relearning this fun, expressive language at all our various levels and dialects. Chat about books, music, movies, theater, culture, travel, about Yiddish and yiddishkeit as we experienced it or not. Those who know help those who don't - yet. Ayb du vilst red'n Yiddish, kum tsu unzerer Meetup, und du velst zeyn tsufridden! Come to speak it, hear it, and enjoy yourself.
Kosher locales. Manhattan for convenience.
