Zelda Kahan Newman

I am now working on a biography of the most prolific woman writer of Yiddish: Kadya Molodowsky. The next poem I will add to the blog on Rivka Basman Beh-Haim is dedicated to Kadya.

Academic Interests

I am interested in Yiddish literature as well as Modern spoken Yiddish. The latter is changing (as all languages in contact with a Dominant language do) and that, too, is a subject of my research.
