for the country mouse
Dear Colleague,

Apologies for the late notice, but I wanted to reach out directly to you. I’m writing to tell you about a terrific opportunity for your best and brightest students, and one that is tuition-free. I’m particularly proud of this year’s program because of the addition of research and publication opportunities for our top students.

We have a few more openings for the Steiner Summer Program at the Yiddish Book Center, a 7-week program running from June 12 through July 29 in Amherst, Massachusetts. The program is intensive, providing 3 hours of Yiddish language instruction every day (beginning or continuing levels), as well as a course in Yiddish culture, advanced research, conference presentations, the Paper Bridge Summer Arts Festival, and a three-day tour of Yiddish New York. Program details, application form and instructions are at:

We’ll need your students’ applications and materials by March 1. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at or 303-492-7143.
