The FORWARD is excited to partner with HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project to present “Jewish Wordle: A conversation with the creators of Ladino, Yiddish, and Jewish English versions.”
Wordle, the international word game sensation, has inspired multiple Jewish versions. Join us on Sunday for a fun, enlightening conversation with some of their developers: Nesi Altaras, Jamie Conway, and Abra Kaplan.
Why and how did they create these unique Jewish Wordles? How did they make decisions about which alphabets, spellings, and words to use? How have these games raised awareness about Jewish languages, and what educational applications are possible?
Forward editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren will moderate the conversation, and Sarah Bunin Benor, Director of the Jewish Language Project, will provide commentary.
