a space for Yiddish language and culture in the heart of Leopoldstadt
Following on from our successful Festival "Jiddisch auf der Spur", we are planning to open the doors of our new location YUNG YiDiSH WIEN Cultural Centre in the heart of the Orthodox Jewish part of Leopoldstadt.
Our space will cater for the needs of the Viennese cultural public interested in Yiddish language and culture, throw a special spotlight on women’s contribution to Yiddish culture, and also reach out to the Yiddish-speaking Orthodox community living in the vicinity of our location.
