Yiddish was born in the eleventh century and has been the living language of the Jewish people ever since. Ten million people speak Yiddish (a low estimate), and the tongue is so universal that it has become a linguistic passport in most of the world. This is a fascinating, useful, sometimes riotously funny collection of colloquialisms, proverbs, curses, wise maxims and ribald expressions.
