Miriam Hoffman and her son Avi are the founders of the Yiddishkayt Initiative (YI), a 501c3 organization that has become a global force for celebrating and promoting Jewish history, life and culture and their positive and far-reaching impact on the world.
From performing arts, publishing, and education to language, philosophy, and literature, YI offers a global clearinghouse of Jewish culture and entertainment staffed by experts in both subject matter and production. We work with a wide range of organizations, including Federations, JCCs, synagogues, Hadassah chapters, Hillel chapters, men’s groups, women’s guilds, special interest clubs, youth groups, summer camp programs and educational institutions.
Join Miriam, Avi, and the Yiddishkayt Initiative to make sure Jewish culture – and our very Jewishness – continue to thrive.
