At the turn of the 21st century, literature continued to be written in Yiddish but its secular reading audience was shrinking. Some ultra-Orthodox Jews still used Yiddish on a daily basis, but they seldom read literature from outside their own circle. New journals, local Yiddish clubs, Yiddish and klezmer festivals, and the Internet , however, generated a great deal of enthusiasm for Yiddish. In spite of the declining readership, a small but active literary scene continued to evolve in the United States and Israel. The works by ultra-Orthodox authors existed in a separate sphere. Naye vegn and Toplpunkt , mentioned above, are two Tel Aviv-based journals that publish works by both new and established authors. Most encouraging for the future of Yiddish literature are the contributions by writers such as Moshe Lemster, Michael Felzenbaum, and Velvl Chernin.

Watch the next CHAKKAR CIRCLE on our Instagram Live @TheChakkar on Tuesday, July 28 from 4 PM IST. We will be joined experimental Indian musician.
Michelle works to develop Circles with older people living in the community in Doncaster. Part of her role involves matching volunteers with opportunities to get involved. In her most recent blog she talks about the challenges of matching volunteers and how to alleviate the frustration they may feel when waiting for a match. Circles in Doncaster is set in the community with older people who live in their own homes and want to get out and about more as they have become socially isolated or feel lonely.
With this in mind, we held a focus group of volunteers, some who had been with the project at the beginning and a new volunteer. We learnt that some volunteers were willing to do more to support the project to make the changes it requires to continue to grow. We know that it is frustrating to wait for a match, so we are now having discussions with volunteers about what they may like to do whilst waiting. We found that some volunteers may benefit from a break from the one to one volunteer role as their Focus Person may be in hospital or respite.
We are forging links with Doncaster college and WEA which gives us exciting opportunities to do different activities and bring like-minded focus people and volunteers together. This also enables volunteers to do things side by side with their focus person so they are seen as equals in their relationships. In recognition that the project is growing, we need to consider the sustainability of the project and look at ways that volunteers can support one another.
