United Jewish Workers’ Cultural Society

NYU Press

This chapter calls for further support for the United Jewish Workers' Cultural Society to develop Yiddish language and culture, in resistance to the general trend toward Americanization. It details the accomplishments and ongoing efforts of the Cultural Society from the past year, highlighting their goal “of preparing the warm sentiments needed for tackling our local cultural problems in their full depth and breadth, and for the creation of a beautiful, festive cultural atmosphere in our prosaic working-class life.” For its second year of activities, the Cultural Society proposes to build cultural institutions, such as schools, courses for adults, and the like, in the hopes that these will form the basis of the Society and the cultural activities of the working class.

Keywords:   United Jewish Workers' Cultural Society, Yiddish language, Yiddish culture, Americanization, cultural problems, working-class life, cultural activities, cultural institutions
