Chicago is the nation’s third most populous city, but holds the unenviable title of being America’s murder capital, with 489 homicides documented last year. And since most of the victims are black, the high murder rates have provoked a gradual exodus of the black middle class. Correspondent Brandis Friedman of WTTW reports from Chicago.

Yiddish is often seen as dying. But the last decade has seen a younger, secular generation of Yiddish lovers launch websites, start and reform organizations, and even found a Yiddish-speaking organic farm. Who are these new Yiddishists? What, if anything, defines Yiddish culture in the startup age? This panel brings together prominent scholars and activists of New Yiddishism: Sarah Zarrow, managing editor of In geveb: A Journal of Yiddish Studies; Sandy Fox, doctoral candidate at NYU; Ross Perlin, of the endangered language alliance; and Dmitri Zisl Slepovich, ethnomusicologist and leader of the band Litvakus. Co-sponsored with the Yiddish Book Center
