Yiddish, a language that is more than 1,000 years old, is being revived as a legacy language by scholars and even by hipsters. In addition to studying the vocabulary, structure, and grammar of the Yiddish language, students explore the range of cultural expressions (in areas like cuisine, fashion, and music) and contexts that shaped the development of Yiddish from the Middle Ages to the present.
