Yiddish in Daily Life

ID : 60   
« back to classes page
Do you kibbutz or shmooze over coffee? Have you schlepped your kids to school, soccer or hockey and kvetched about it? Perhaps you had the chutzpah to call your best friend a yenta? Are you a fan of "Laverne and Shirley"? Then you've probably wondered what schlemiel and shlimazel were! These Yiddish words--and several others--have attained common usage in the American lexicon. Mary Lynn and Alan will use The Joys of Yiddish, by Leo Rosten, to bring you the history, wit and usage of this very descriptive and joyful language. You'll plotz! Join us and learn a new way of expressing yourself.
