I received my MA in Yiddish Studies from the University of Toronto in 2020, with a focus on the work of Soviet Yiddish playwright Moyshe Pintshevski during the Second World War. I’m happy to be back for more Yiddish and am currently working toward my PhD under the supervision of Dr. Anna Shternshis. I’m interested in experiences of disability and illness among Yiddish-speaking Jews in the early and mid twentieth century.
I have a strong interest in translation and enjoy working as a Yiddish-to-English translator of literary texts as well as personal documents. I also love to teach and have really appreciated the chance to work with the amazing group of Yiddish learners at UofT. If you’re reading this because you’re considering taking Yiddish, please join us; you won’t regret it! Outside of Yiddish-related stuff, I’m into fibre arts, cats, and eating (and sometimes making) baked goods.
