Students Declare Ikh bin nisht keyn ketsl in Zoom Filter Fiasco

The Editors

Yiddish teachers have been on high alert as more and more Yiddish students around the world have been showing up to Zoom class disguised as cats, kittens, and other feline animals. In the wake of the infamous Lawyer Cat video, it seems that one such fiasco occurred in the Elementary Yiddish class of Dr. Jessica Kirzane, Editor-in-Chief of In Geveb and Assistant Instructional Professor in Yiddish at the University of Chicago.

“I had no idea what was going on,” recounts Dr. Kirzane, “My wonderful students were suddenly turned into cats with whiskers and ears. And the worst part? They kept assuring me they weren’t cats at all. But I know what I saw.”

In geveb is lucky enough to have a recording of that fateful Yiddish class, where you can see for yourself what transpired.

A video of the scene in Dr. Kirzane’s Ele­men­tary Yid­dish class, along with her stu­dents Noa­dia Stein­metz-Sil­ber, Solomon Freilich, and Eyshe Beirich. Video edit­ed by Noa­dia Steinmetz-Silber.
