Jewish group holds 'Yiddish for Dogs' class in New York City's Central Park
A Jewish group dedicated to the promotion of the Yiddish language held a 'Yiddish for Dogs' class in New York City’s Central Park on Sunday.
It was put on by the non-profit Workmen's Circle, which offers the largest Yiddish language program in the world.
Dogs and their owners learned how to respond to commands such as 'sit' and 'stay' in Yiddish. All attendees received goody bags for their pets.
The group said in a Facebook post, "Learning to train our dogs using Yiddish commands is one way we keep our cultural heritage alive while having fun."
The group says it teaches more than 800 students annually, but it was unclear whether the four-legged pupils were included in that tally.
