I loved this post from beginning to end and that picture of your grandmother and aunt is priceless! I have the entire Yiddish Radio Project on my iPod and have listened to it several times. How about that amazing show called "Reunion" where they reunited that guy with his Holocaust survivor father who he hadn't seen since before the war? And the story of the guy who wrote "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon" and his series of awful business decisions that left him penniless despite the song's success? Do you know if Seymour Rexite is still alive? I want to sit in his apartment and hear him sing every song he knows. Did you ever end up learning more Yiddish?

And how about the ever popular: "Your teeth should all fall out except for one that should stay for a toothache!"

P.S. I want to start a contest for Blog Design just so you can win it! LOVE the graphics!


Yiddish seems exceptionally similar to German.
