The House of Yiddish Culture

The House of Yiddish Culture aims to encourage the preservation of its heritage, to disseminate Yiddish culture in France and in Europe, to promote Yiddish as a language of culture, and to foster its knowledge among people from all walks of life.

– a media library (collections of the Medem Library, video library, sound library),
– language courses at all levels, seminars on Yiddish literature and a summer university
– artistic workshops (theater, songs, poetry, cinema, folk dances, klezmer music, etc.)
– activities for children (language classes, choir, drawing workshop, children’s shows, parties and carnival)
– Yiddish conversation and reflection circles,
– activities in French and Yiddish (exhibitions, shows, film and documentary screenings, conferences),
– a bookstore café
