Yiddish & Danish (Y & D) is a video glossary of Yiddish words and expressions. Pull up a seat and meet some Yiddish speakers.  Shtetl brings yummy danish into their homes, and they bring Yiddish words and expressions into yours. Click on a word and learn what chutzpa really means.  Or, practice saying “zol er lebn; ober nit lang” (He should live…but not long!) for your next dinner party!

If you disagree with an explanation, leave a comment. Y & D is a place to learn, to kibitz and to exchange. Ok, genug. Go grab a danish and learn Yiddish already!
