Yiddish, the language of European Jewry, is based in German with elements of Hebrew, Aramaic, Slavic and Romance languages. Though it reached its height as a complete language before World War II, it is experiencing a renaissance today. American English is peppered with common Yiddishisms such as deli, shmooze, glitch, maven and schmuck. This kit contains a mix of Yiddish and English words, as well as a mini Yiddish dictionary, allowing everybody to join in the fridge door nkibitz!
