Generation J 2022

ages 13 to 18, dates coming soon!

We are young and we are Yiddish.
The granny language?
Yes – and no.
Experience why Yiddish is exactly for you
and join the first Yiddish International
Summer Camp in Germany.
Or is it?
The first one ever.

Let’s find out together!

Zayt bagrist! 

My name is Jojne

and I invite you to our summer camp!

What’s happening?

Machane, Camp, summer school – you name it. All of that, and yet different. Generation J brings together arts and learning, discussion and friendship. Come explore a Yiddish world with us. A world that goes far beyond Shtisl and grannies; a world that is creative, young and avantgarde. And by “exploration”, we don’t mean: we lecture and you listen. Not at all. Instead, you’ll help us create the program!  This year, there is one program for young adults from 18 to 30. 2022, we plan a program for ages 13 to 18 too.

Yiddish is alive, because we are. Because you are  making it come alive with us. Together with a team of other young people and wonderful teachers, you’ll create a creative project and learn so much along the way - about Yiddish, beauty and politics, music, Jewish history, literature, film, resistance and empowerment, vulnerability - then and now -  and finally: about yourself.


Your registration via our form helps us select 30 participants for the program. The form will also ask you for your pronouns and how we can contact you. We’ll send you the final confirmation and regular updates about the project. There are still a few spots left! So register now, and feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Who’s behind it?

At Generation J, we’ve brought together the best ever team. Naturally. We’ll be posting portraits of our team members in the coming weeks here and on instagram (@yiddishsummerweimar). Be ready for some surprises!
