Jewish Youth in a Yiddishist and Polish Milieu: The Vilna Educational Society and Polish-Jewish Hybridic Identity among Yiddish-speaking Youth in Interwar Vilna

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper explores a Polish-Jewish hybridic youth identity that ensued among Yiddish-speaking Jewish youth in the city of Vilna during the interwar years, by looking at the relationship between Jewish leaders affiliated with the Vilna Educational Society (Vilbig) and those who partook in the society's programs. Founded in 1924, leaders of Vilbig championed secular Jewish nationalism through Yiddish language instruction and cultural events, intended to rear a generation of future Yiddish cultural consumers and producers and ensure the continued existence of a secular Jewish nation in Poland. Using archival materials, including minutes of meetings and correspondence between members and Vilbig officials, my paper illuminates the development of a hybrid Polish-Jewish identity and the Yiddishist intelligentsia's intense fear of Polish linguistic and cultural influences, while simultaneously and paradoxically nurturing its development, as Vilbig leaders were forced to come to terms with Vilna Jewry's increasing acculturation into Polish society.
