You Know More Yiddish Than You Think!
How much Yiddish do you know? Probably more than you think. Some English words have made their way into Yiddish. Many Yiddish words are now commonly used in English. And a surprising number of Yiddish and English words are related – they sound almost the same in both languages. Our four lively games give you a chance to show off the Yiddish you didn’t even know you know. This exhibition is made possible by Nancy and Stephen (Skippy) Weinstein with additional support by Leo and Eda Rabinovitz, and Chana and Yechiel Schachner in memory of Malky Toby Schachner.
