Instructor: Gela Altman -- Gela was born in Cuba to Jewish parents of Polish descent. They wanted her and her sisters to become literate in Yiddish, and thus began Gela's love affair with our wonderful ancestral language. She attended Hebrew/Yiddish school until the age of 12, where she studied and perfected Yiddish and Spanish.
After leaving Cuba in 1961, she finished high school and college, receiving her MSW in Clinical Social Work from Loyola University. Since retiring in 2014, Gela has been teaching Yiddish.
- Attend class regularly
- Practice a little bit of Yiddish each day (light homework)
