YIDDISH BERLIN is a loose group of artists, scholars, activists, and enthusiasts based in Berlin and dedicated to Yiddish – as a language, as an expression, as a statement, as a way of life.

We organize thematic art exhibitions, literary events, talks, reading groups, conversation circles, salons, film screenings, and other activities that sustain living Yiddish culture and both remember and transmit its rich legacy.

YIDDISH BERLIN grew out of the Yiddish cultural festivals of Shtetl Berlin, with which we maintain close ties.
