Thanks to everyone who helped make Yiddish Summer Weimar a success in 2018!

In 2019 we recognize the 100th anniversary of the beginnings of the Weimar Republic. To celebrate the almost unimaginable outpouring of create energy throughout Europe in that era, our special topic next year will be "The Weimar Republic of Yiddishland" - an encounter between the Weimar Republic and the politically virtual but culturally very real Republic of Yiddishland.

Thanks to a generous grant from the German Federal Cultural Foundation, we will draw on this extraordinarily creative phase in Yiddish cultural history to create an impressive array of brand-new projects with a superb roster of international artists. We're still working out all the details, but for now, here are the tentative dates:

YSW 2019: July 11 - August 18, including the FESTIVAL WEEK from July 27 - August 3 with a world premiere every night!

We'll publish the exact dates of the workshops by the end of December, so keep your eye on this website, or better still, register for our newsletter for all the latest updates!

Looking forward to seeing you next summer in Weimar!

Warmest greetings from Alan, Andreas, Johannes, Sabrina, Sayumi, Sabine, Katrin F., Katrin P. and Antonia!
