A Century of Fiction from the Forward
Winter 2018 session of Encountering Jewish Culture

with Esther Cohen Hexter
Read and explore stories from America’s greatest Yiddish newspaper, the Forward, many in English for the first time, from a new anthology that gathers a century’s worth of fiction. Teeming with life, both funny and bittersweet, this collection honors not only a language, but a world itself. All readings are in English. Have I Got A Story for You provides a panoramic view into a vanishing, and irreplaceable, Jewish cosmos. Invite friends to join in lively discussions for senior adults and friends; or give contact info to Esther Hexter. Everyone is welcome to join our conversation. No prerequisite, only a desire to learn.  
Time: 6 Wednesdays, 11:15 AM-12:45 PM, Jan.  10, 17, 24, 31, Feb. 7 & 14, 2018
