Red Yiddish is for Angelenos in their 20s and 30s interested in exploring contemporary Yiddish culture. Red Yiddish salons are monthly presentations by Los Angeles-based artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, and professors who are pushing the boundaries of Yiddish culture. Study beginning Yiddish for the first hour (at 7:30) or come for the guest speaker at 8:30. Red Yiddish salons are held in the library of the Yiddish Culture Club, inside the Jewish Educational Institute.

Red Yiddish is a program of Yiddishkayt's Avada Project. Avada engages Angelenos in their 20s and 30s with the history, complexity and depth of Yiddish culture through quality, experimental programming. Avada offers an alternative vision of what it means to be Jewish today. In Yiddish, the word avade means of course. Visit Yiddishkayt or Avada for more information on our programs and upcoming events.
