Scope of Materials

This pathfinder covers materials primarily related to American Yiddish Culture from the late 19th century to the present. There are a couple of sources that deal with Yiddish Culture in other countries for those interested, but the primary focus is on American sources. This pathfinder covers three major areas within the topic including the language, the literature, and the performing arts, In addition, there is a section for sources that do not fall neatly into any of the aforementioned categories. Researchers who are just beginning their studies in Yiddish Culture will find this pathfinder most useful, but those who are already experts in the field may wish to look elsewhere.
