Master's thesis on H. Zhitlowsky fighting Ashkenazi assimilation supported by the Authority
For five years running, the National Authority for Yiddish Culture has been granting scholarships at Israeli universities to students whose M.A., Ph.D. or post-doctorate research focuses on Yiddish language and culture. Once complete, the Authority publishes their theses and dissertations.
Most recently, the Authority supported the M.A. thesis by Reyze J. Turner at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem "Confronting the Jewish Rejection of Jewish Particularism: Chaim Zhitlowsky’s Pedagogical Intervention into Ashkenazi American Assimilation".
