"We believe that yiddishkayt — the culture, language, art, and worldviews of Eastern European Jews, as they lived in Europe and in the places they settled — has a crucial role to play in our world today. Yiddish culture offers a much-needed model of diverse people coming together and rejecting parochialism, of fusion, collective creativity, and critical engagement. We serve the public by cultivating the work of new artists and scholars of culture that preserves, promotes, and broadcasts the legacy of Yiddish culture while embodying the spirit of diversity, solidarity with immigrant communities, and intercultural sensibilities common both to Los Angeles and the world of Yiddish."
