Acclaimed Yiddishist CARAID O’BRIEN will appear at the Westside Yiddish Cultural School, located in the basement of Congregation Shaare Zedek. Ms. O’Brien will relate her experiences growing up in an Irish-American family in Boston, her serendipitous discovery of Yiddish, and her career dedicated to the Yiddish language as a Yiddishist, actress and writer (as profiled in the NEW YORK TIMES). This event is free and open to the public. Seating will be on a first-come basis.
