Mohamed Elias is a Political Science major and Jewish Studies minor. With the support of a Mitchell F. and Sophie Wise Ehrlich Opportunity Grant,  he will participate  in a program sponsored by the YIVO Institute for Yiddish and Bard College this summer. As an Iraqi native who speaks Judeo-Arabic, his interest in studying Yiddish stems from his desire to help revive this historically significant language. Being knowledgeable about Yiddish language and literature will allow him to access to the rich culture and history of Central and Eastern European Jewry.
