Event Description

Curator Eddy Portnoy shares the story behind Yiddish Fight Club, a look at the often-overlooked history of Jewish boxers and wrestlers and the colorful Yiddish slang of this world. Portnoy is a senior researcher at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, where this exhibit was first mounted. It will be in the Yiddish Book Center’s Brechner Gallery through September 30.

Made possible in part by the Brechner family.
