Yiddish Book Center, Amherst MA

Yiddish Book Center Exhibit: Yiddish Fight Club

May 15 to September 30. The stereotypes say that Jews don’t know how to fight. The reality is that not only do Jews bring the ruckus, but there exists a rich Yiddish vocabulary that vividly describes exactly how they do it. Yiddish Fight Club combines the now-forgotten slang of a violent Yiddish underworld with images of Jewish brawlers from the past. An exhibit of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, New York.
