Ten Yiddish words that went mainstream

I think I’ve used nine of these ten.  It’s such an interesting language. Nosh, putz, klutz, etc. European Jews have had an amazing influence on our culture, art, entertainment and language.


10 years ago I blogged about Aaron Lansky and his goal to save Yiddish books.  It’s still interesting given my librarian background, and I’ll have to go back and check on what has happened to that effort. https://collectingmythoughts.blogspot.com/2009/05/saving-culture-through-its-books-99-of.html
