Yiddish

The Swedish government asked Lund University to establish a Yiddish Studies Program. Yiddish is part of the Swedish and European cultural heritage. This Jewish language originating in Eastern Europe is an official minority language in Sweden.

To study Yiddish is not only an encounter with a fascinating and rich language but also an entrance to a world of literature, folklore, songs, art and ideas.

Center for Languages and Literatures offers courses in the language and in Yiddish culture's origin and development in Eastern Europe and continued existence in Sweden.
