Replay of interview with Anita Norich, Professor of English and Jewish Studies at University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, about her newest book, Writing in Tongues: Translating Yiddish in the Twentieth Century.

Gladys Heitin was a long-time friend of our cohost Hasia Segal. She was a veteran Boston Workmen's Circle member and leader, a teacher of Yiddish, and a great activist for Yiddish, Yiddish Culture, and secular Jewish/Yiddish identity. We replay excerpts from an interview with Gladys done in 2005 for our program in memory of the late Yiddish actress and radio personality from Boston Leah Post Carrey, with whom Gladys was close friends for many decades.

Also, daily news in Yiddish provided by Kol Israel radio service in Yiddish, presented by Avrohom Zaks.
