Melanie Ehrlich

Melanie Ehrlich from Shir Chadash and Tulane Medical School (Professor of Human Genetics) is a devotee of Yiddish, although a novice. At the 2014 LimmudFest, she taught a class on the history and linguistics of Yiddish. Her other performance experience, besides science teaching and conference presentations, includes dozens of appearances on TV, mostly in 2006-2009, as the founder and co-chairman of Citizens’ Road Home Action Team (CHAT). CHAT helped make the administration of the $10 billion Road Home Program (disaster relief for victims of the Hurricane/Flood Katrina) less horrible and unfair.
