In Brief ...
Why is Yiddish so important for young generation?
People who draw no lessons from the past often reiterate mistakes committed earlier. Chiefs without a historic perspective were once taken for clever men of politics but have never been statesmen. There are Jews who are, unfortunately, unaware of the fact we are the most ancient nation on the Earth. Suffice it to say Moisei had received Torah on Sinai Mountain much earlier than Christianity and Islam appeared. Saturday - a day off - also appeared before Christian Sunday and Muslim Friday.
In September the Kharkov Jewish culture center "Beit Dan" started a new program "Club of Yiddish learners" headed by Stas Raiko. Best American and Israeli teaching materials are used during the studies.
