Our Curator


Miriam Borden

Head Curator of Discovering Yiddish, Miriam holds an M.A. in Yiddish from the University of Toronto and is currently a doctoral student in Yiddish there. She has worked as an Assistant Archivist, researcher, and translator at the Ontario Jewish Archives, and as a tour guide for the Archives’ walking tours of historic Kensington Market. She has consulted for the Yidlife Crisis web series and been featured on Vaybertaytsh: A Feminist Podcast, in Yiddish. She is an Oral History Field Fellow with the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts and was a first-time (but definitely not last-time) presenter at the 2018 Ashkenaz Festival, where she spoke about herring.

Currently, you can catch Miriam taking over the Ontario Jewish Archives Instagram account on Fridays for the #YiddishWordoftheWeek. Check out @ontariojewisharchives for your weekly dose of Yiddish!
