"The Capital of Yiddishland": YIVO and its Relationship to Vilna
 
PODBRODZER LECTURE
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)

Producer: ( YIVO Institute for Jewish Research)
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
City: New York

Additional Notes:
YIVO was founded in 1925 as the first organization dedicated to scholarship in Yiddish as well as the culture and history of Yiddish-speaking Jews. In retrospect all agreed that it could have only been established in Vilna, the capital of Yiddishland, which was historically a center of Jewish learning, and in the interwar period a hub of secular Jewish culture. Yet the impetus for creating such an institute originally came from Berlin and for more than two years YIVO's location was uncertain. When YIVO eventually erected its headquarters in the city, it became the crown jewel among local institutions as well as the center of a widely dispersed “Yiddish nation” spanning four continents. What can the relationship between YIVO and Vilna tell us about the dynamics of interwar Yiddish culture? Why did YIVO's leadership waver for so long on whether to locate in Vilna, and what did its decision finally mean for the institutes work and for Vilna itself?The Podbrodzer Lecture is made possible by support from the Podbrodzer Progressive Benevolent Association. This lecture was established to honor the Jewish Community of Podbrodz, now named Padbrade.

LCDR Stewart Sutherland (ret) enlisted in the USCG on 30 August 1960. In his retirement he became an active and vital member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary in the port of New York and New Jersey. He will be celebrating his 50th anniversary as a member of the Coast Guard family this year.

THIS IS A SURPRISE SO DONT TELL STEW or CAROL!!!

Throughout the years he has served his nation from the jungles of Vietnam to the frozen wastes of Antarctica. His contribution to the USCG during peace and war has rarely been rivaled. His civilian contributions as a scientist and marine biologist at Columbia University's Lamont Earth Observatory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute continue to expand our understanding of our oceans and climate.

As an Auxiliarist he serves hundreds of hours a year and maintains the largest facility in the Auxiliary, the former USCGC Point Brown, now known as the M/V Lady B. This facility provides Auxiliary members with a unique opportunity for training that can be achieved nowhere else. He is also a regular presence standing the watch at Station New York and working in the Water Way Management office at Sector New York. His dedication has exponentially increased the body of knowledge, professionalism and effectiveness of the Auxiliary, allowing the 1SR to truly be “first and foremost” in the nation.
