In retelling his remarkable family saga, beginning with a flashback to his grandmother's storybook wedding in 1878, Roskies brings to life the major debates, struggles, and triumphs of the modern Yiddish experience. By painting vivid portraits of the great writers and cultural leaders from the Old World of Vilna to the New World of Montreal and New York, Yiddishlands illustrates how Yiddish culture is transmitted through story, song, study, and most importantly, the family.
