We certainly know about Hebrew—and perhaps Yiddish, but what is it that makes a language a “Jewish Language?” We shall be exploring this question in a presentation by Dr. Aaron Rubin of Penn State’s Jewish Studies Program. Dr. Rubin is the Malvin E. and Lea P. Bank Professor of Jewish Studies, Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, and Linguistics at Penn State.
