Caplan Marc Dr. 1.jpgDr. Caplan is the Zelda and Myer Tandetnik Professor in Yiddish Language, Literature, and Culture at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Caplan earned his Ph.D. in comparative literature from New York University. His primary interest as a scholar is to place the study of Yiddish literature in comparative contexts. His next book-length project will explore Yiddish literature written in Weimar Germany, considered in comparison with contemporaneous German literature, theater, and film. In addition to his academic commitments to the study of Yiddish literature, Dr. Caplan writes a regular column in Yiddish on popular culture for the journal Afn shvel.

Special thanks to Barry Isaac from Gross, Mendelsohn & Associates for hosting this lunch n’ learn. Thank you to Dr. Caplan for honoring us with this presentation.

"I found these classes to be different than most that I’ve attended in the past. They are dynamic, personal and meaningful. This has been a wonderful learning experience."
-- Michael D. Felder, MD Pediatrician, Los Angeles, CA

All in all, I now have a completely new understanding of my religion.  There are so many things that I could have gone my whole life not knowing that I know now, and I’m very thankful that I took this class.  It just made me even more interested in Judaism, and I have so many questions and would love to continue learning more.  … really opened up my mind to so many things I would have never even thought I’d have wanted it opened up to.  And I’m definitely now much more proud of my religion than I ever was before.
