Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Etty Performance

“Etty” is a 50-minute play drawn from the diaries of Etty Hillesum, a sensuous, intelligent, and poetic young Dutch Jewish woman searching for the meaning of her life--and all life--during the terror of Nazi occupation. In the midst of two separate love affairs, she "happens upon" prayer, discovers a reality that she calls God, and opens herself to the power of being fully alive and present, bearing witness, even to the catastrophe unfolding around her. Etty speaks directly to the audience, frankly, and with compassion -- even for the enemy.  She talks about wrestling with life and love, about unflinchingly staring down reality but not allowing others to make one a victim, about claiming what comes in life and finding meaning in it.

For the second act, actress and playwright Susan Stein propels the conversation into our own times. In this touching exploration of the human spirit, wrapped in a novel approach to theater, Stein gives life to Etty's wish to “have a bit of a say” in what she hoped would be a new world.  After spending nearly an hour inside Etty's thinking, the play is followed immediately by a post-performance discussions which fosters dialogue about social justice, human rights, genocide, women, writing as resistance and ethical dilemmas.

If you’re curious to learn more about The Ettyplay Project and the remarkable woman who has inspired this work, please visit the website at www.ettyplay.org.  Due to the subject matter of the play, attendees should be age 14 and older. 

Thank you to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, Classrooms Without Borders, and South Hills Jewish Pittsburgh for making this program possible.

Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
