The Yiddish Book Center Fellowship Program is looking for recent college graduates with a background in Jewish studies (or related disciplines) and a working knowledge of Yiddish. The Yiddish Book Center aims to preserve Jewish culture and heritage through literature. The founder of the Center, Aaron Lansky, realized that untold numbers of irreplaceable Yiddish books, which were the primary legacy of 1,000 years of Jewish life in Eastern Europe, were being discarded by American-born Jews that could not read Yiddish. The Yiddish Book Center has more than a million volumes in its libraries and their goal is to place these books in the hands of new readers. Their initiatives include education, translation, publications, oral history, exhibits, and public programs.
