Yiddish Reading Group: “Pictures from a Provincial Journey”

1762 Beacon St. Brookline, MA 02445

A Yiddish reading group that meets at Boston Workmen’s Circle is inviting new members! We have just started reading I.L.Peretz’ delightful “Pictures from a Provincial Journey” (“Bilder fun a Provints Rayze”), a series of short vignettes describing his ethnographic travels in eastern Poland in 1890. Download for free here. Two English translations are available as well. Helena Frank's translation entitled "Travel Pictures", stays closer to the Yiddish text. 

We read at a leisurely pace, 5-8 pages per meeting, and we usually meet weekly on Friday mornings from 11:00AM-12:30PM at BWC.  Drop-ins welcome.
