Translation is that which transforms everything so that nothing changes.Grass Günter


I am a published and reviewed professional translator specializing in the research and translation of Yiddish literature, historical documents and yizkor (memorial) books: 

My translations have been featured in the Jewish Review of Books and published on the Yiddish Book Center website Yiddish in Translation.


I  am a translator for the Ellis Island Discography Project , and  have transcribed and translated multiple early 20th-century Yiddish songs relating to the Jewish Yiddish-speaking immigrant experience.
