Delray Beach Public Library is pleased to present “Celebrating Yinglish with Avi Hoffman.” What is Yinglish? Yinglish is that unique American linguistic combination of Yiddish and English. From the more than 5,000 Yiddish words that have officially become part of the English language, Avi Hoffman presents stories and words that celebrate the idiomatic phenomenon that laid the foundation for modern mainstream culture.
Avi Hoffman is a renowned award-winning actor, Jewish culture activist, and founder and CEO of Yiddishkayt Initiative. Yiddishkayt Initiative (YI) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that celebrates and promotes Jewish history, life, and culture and their positive and far-reaching impact on the world.
Registration is required. There is free public parking on the surface lot behind the library. Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with Delray Beach Public Library. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities
