Yiddish Poetry in America
Enriching the Present through Links to the Past
Welcome! This homepage is dedicated to offering selections from poetry in Yiddish written by authors who lived in the U.S. This month I am happy to
present poetry by the distinguished H. Leyvik, many times a laureate, the amiable Avrom Reisen, and, for the first time, verse written by Dovid Edelshtat, with whom Yiddish poetry
begins on these shores. To read the poems, click on the links below.
