Journal for Diasporic Hebrew, with Tal Hever-Chybowski
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: What centuries-old traditional method was used to finance the publication of the second issue of Journal for Diasporic Hebrew?
Tal Hever-Chybowski grew up in Jerusalem and obtained a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in History from the Hebrew University. In 2008, he moved to Berlin where he received an MA and PhD in history at Humboldt University.
He learned Yiddish in Vilnius and Paris, and he became the director of the House of Yiddish Culture – Medem Library in Paris in September 2014. In 2017 he directed their first Yiddish summer program in Berlin, which he told us about in a previous program.
Tal is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Mikan Ve’eylakh, Journal for Diasporic Hebrew, which he is speaking with us about this week.
