As people continue to spend their days and evenings at home, due to coronavirus social distancing restrictions, the Forverts has decided to launch a daily series of short informal video clips called Yiddish Word of the Day.
The series, written and narrated by Forverts editor Rukhl Schaechter, aims to give non-Yiddish speakers an introduction to familiar Yiddish words and phrases and how they might be used in everyday situations.
