Mission Statement

We are The California Institute for Yiddish Culture & Language (CIYCL). Since 1999 we have been challenging the fog of lost memory and ignorance about Yiddish culture. We work against the tide that separates most Jews alive today from their own remarkable heritage and that has put Yiddish at risk of expiring. We cherish and illuminate a vast legacy - a heritage which cannot be replicated. We are a spark of historical memory for the local and broader Jewish community, one that reaches beyond the normative Holocaust or Israel-related endeavors to keep alive the heart-and-soul culture that fed our people during a 1000-year long and vital period of our history. Our motto is "preservation through innovation."

CIYCL is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
