Chaya’leh Ash, z”l
Posted by Oyster on May 30, 2012
I’m saddened to hear that Chaya’leh Ash, z”l, my onetime Yiddish teacher, has passed away. She was born into a famous Yiddish acting troupe, and survived the Holocaust to become a leading exponent of Yiddish language and culture.
I read the bad news first in the JValley May issue:
… but evidently she passed away in March. My condolences to her family. May her memory be for a blessing.
The JValley article mentions that you can donate to Jewish Family Services in her memory.
The Forvertz also has an article about Chaya’leh:
Oyf simkhes… 😦
