Yiddish, a historical language that originated in Central Europe during the 9th century, has been used by the Jewish community for hundreds of years. Today, it’s mainly spoken by Orthodox Jews and elders — over 40% of Yiddish speakers in the US are over 65 years old!
Through the years Yiddish has produced some fine proverbs such as:
1. “Az men krigt zikh miten rov, muz men sholem zein miten shainker.” — If you’re at odds with your rabbi, make peace with your bartender.
