europejski dzien jezykowOpening of the exhibition about Jewish languages on the occasion of the European Day of Languages

Wherever Jews have lived, they have mostly spoken and/or written differently from their neighbors. In some cases, their languages have differed by embedded Hebrew words; in others, they have spoken a completely different language. Many have heard of the Diaspora languages, Yiddish and Ladino. However, Jews have spoken dozens of languages throughout hundreds of years of their migration and settlement. From the treasures of the National Library of Israel’s Collections, we offer a small glimpse into the vast world of Jewish languages.

The exhibition is organized in cooperation with Bente Kahan Foundation.
