Adah graduated from Indiana University with an M.A. in Jewish Studies in May 2018 after she defended her thesis, “Contemporary Yiddish Women Singers and their Development of Yiddish Identity.” She owes her research interest and love for Yiddish song to her years as a participant at klezmer festivals and to her Yiddish language professors.
