The Jewish Public Library of Winnipeg is supporting Yiddish studies at the University of Manitoba, it was reported here by Prof. Neal Rose. A stipend provided by the library will cover the cost of any student who wishes to study elementary or intermediate Yiddish, Prof. Rose said. Courses in the language are acceptable for matriculation. At present, several students are completing master’s dissertations in areas concerning Yiddish literature and philology, he said.
