About Me
I am a specialist in the Yiddish language and literature with broader expertise in the history and culture of Jews in Eastern Europe. I hold a MA degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Yiddish Studies.
Since 2020, I teach regular courses of Yiddish with the Yiddish Arts and Academics Association of North America. I live in Berlin, where I co-founded an initiative group yiddish.berlin, in the frame of which I take part in the organization of Yiddish cultural events.
Apart from teaching, I work with Yiddish texts and texts related to Jewish history in Europe as a translator, editor, and writer.
I also offer consultations for musicians, writers, movie-makers, and artists who want to introduce Yiddish in their works.
  • Yiddish lessons: private sessions, classes in groups of up to 15 people, workshops
  • Hebrew lessons
  • Consultations on Yiddish pronunciation and grammar
  • Lectures about Yiddish literature and history of Jews in Eastern Europe
  • Translation

I enjoyed both courses (Yiddish Language for Beginners and Shmues for Beginners) very much and learned a lot. The atmosphere was very pleasant and also Katerina managed the different levels of outgoingness of us, students, very nicely.

Katerina is an excellent teacher. It is apparent that she carefully planned the lessons. I appreciate that she was willing to carefully check the homework and I learned a lot from her comments on it.

Thank you so much for the History of Yiddish Literature course! I found the class to be interesting and enjoyable, and I especially appreciate all of the references for further exploration and research.
