Purpose and Activities

Giving for the preservation and study of Yiddish language, culture, theater and art.


Established in 2004 in VT - Chaim Schwartz was a poet, Yiddishist and social activist. He was born in 1903 in Berezin, near Minsk (now Belarus). He left in 1920 and, after sojourns in Poland and Mexico, joined his family in St. Louis, Missouri in 1921. After a brief stint of factory work, he became a wallpaper hanger. While in St. Louis he became active in both cultural and political movements. The Chaim Schwartz Foundation was created upon the death of his daughter, Sandra Schwartz Tangri, to carry on his life work of preserving and studying Yiddish language, culture, theater and art
