For our first Yiddish in translation short story reading group, we will be exploring some of the works of I.L.Peretz, considered one of the three great classical Yiddish writers alongside Sholem Aleichem and Mendele Mokher Sforim.
For our upcoming meeting, we will focus on three short stories: “If Not Higher” (Oyb Nisht Nokh Hekher), “Bontsha the Silent” (Bontshe Shvayg), and “The Golem.” Since some members of our group may have encountered these stories previously, “If Not Higher” has two different translation options for those who wish to compare.
(You can find “If Not Higher” in the original Yiddish here)
