Portrait of the authorZackary Sholem Berger is a poet, journalist, and translator in Yiddish and English. He is probably best known, in the small world of modern-minded Yiddish speakers, as the translator of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat into Yiddish. He has published widely in both Yiddish and English, in journals such as Gilgulim, Lyric, the Forward, and Tablet. He lives in Baltimore with his wife and children – they speak Yiddish to each other and their friends.
