Yiddish Book Center 8/20/2005

This is a really interesting place – even if you’ve never heard of Yiddish. The building reminds me of a Polynesian village from the outside. Admission is free – donations are welcome. Once inside you can take the self guided tour which includes an intriguing video introduction. The outside grounds are beautiful. This is a great spot for a summer picnic. more
