Download PDF for this date

A “Yiddish Book Club,” modeled after the various English book clubs in this country, has just been organized as part of the activities of the American-Yiddish “Kultur Gesellshaft.” Every subscriber of the “Yiddish Book Club” will receive annually eight books, four of which will appear during the coming year and four which have previously appeared. The first book which the subscribers of the “Yiddish Book Club” will receive is Professor Dubnow’s “Geschichte fun Chassidism.”

A home for all the New York activities of the Yiddish Culture Society has just been established at 130 East 17th Street, near the Washington Irving High School. Besides an auditorium for meetings and weekly forums, the home will contain a Yiddish library, the headquarters of the Yiddishist Students’ League, a lecture bureau, etc.
