Yiddish

  Broadcast in Books

Call in to speak with the host

Yiddish is the melting pot of languages! It is a combination of Hebrew, French, German, Polish, Russian, etc. It is a language of humor and beautiful sayings. In this show, I will discuss 2 books, "Yiddish, A Nation of Words" by Miriam Weinstein and "The Story of Yiddish, How a Mish-Mosh of Languages Saved the Jews" by Neal Karem. We will discuss how the language evolved, the politics of the language and more.
