Yugntruf (Youth for Yiddish) Magazine Cover

Last year, I was asked to design the cover for the new issue of the Yugntruf magazine. Yugntruf (Youth for Yiddish) is a non-profit organization that promotes speaking Yiddish as a living language through programs, reading circles and retreats. I have been part of this organization and have frequented their events since infancy and was honored to design this cover for them. It comes at such a great time too, because I leave for Yiddish-Vokh (Yiddish Week - Yugntruf's annual summer camp retreat) tomorrow morning and cannot wait to see my close friends, meet new Yiddish speakers and enjoy the wonderful Yiddish community!

Tonight at Yiddish Week we had the debut of the new issue of the Yugntruf Journal, our all Yiddish-language literary magazine which all Yugntruf members will receive as part of their membership. The issue will be available for sale next week as both a printed journal and a digital download for readers all over the world.
