Yiddishland California is the home of the Yiddish Arts
and Academics Association of North America (YAAANA). YAAANA unites
scholars, artists, activists, and anybody with an interest in Yiddish.
The mission is to expand awareness of the beauty and joy of Yiddishkeit
and to preserve and advance the Yiddish language and culture within the
US and worldwide. YAAANA offers family-friendly, low-cost Yiddish
language classes, theater and song workshops, lectures, and Jewish
holiday celebrations. YAAANA is rooted in the local San Diego County
community, as well as the extended US and international community. The
growing team educates and entertains both virtually and in person.
