WHAT STUDENTS THINK
וואָס סטודענטן מיינען
"Reb Noyekh's online delivery is very accessible and provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere for students separated by vast distances. Although I have only been studying with Reb Noyekh since the middle of 2020, we have covered a huge amount of content, both the Yiddish language and its particular cultural and historical contexts. These sessions are a highlight of my week and I can certainly recommend them!"
JONATHAN, INTERMEDIATE - AUSTRALIA
"I have taken three classes with Reb Noyekh and plan on taking more. He is a truly gifted teacher and I recommend him very highly! His classes are interesting, stimulating and fun. During the coffee hours, I had the pleasure of meeting Gustavo Emos, who is also an excellent teacher. Reb Noyekh and Gustavo are both fluent Yiddish speakers who have a deep love and appreciation of the language and culture. I look forward to taking more classes with them!"
