The Schmooze

WATCH: Bubbe Schools You in Yiddish

You will laugh. You will cry. You will kvell.

The Los Angeles Jewish Home has put together a cute video of some of their best bubbes and zaydes explaining the meaning of Yiddish words. “Yiddish: Part One” (implying, we hope, a “Part Two”) enlightens viewers on how to use the usual suspects — mentsh, shvitz, shmuck and tuches — but also some unusual terms like geshmak.

Philologos may have some serious competition.

Enjoy (we know we did)!
