Yiddish-English/English-Yiddish Dictionary & Phrasebook
by Vera Szabo
Yiddish is the native language of approximately 1.8 million people and serves as the second language for about 11 million people worldwide. The language is a fusion of German dialects with Hebrew, Aramaic, and Slavic languages, and has its origins in Ashkenazi Jewish culture, which began its spread throughout the Central and Eastern Europe around the 10th century.
Nowadays, Yiddish is used throughout the world. The language is spoken and written in many Orthodox Jewish communities and is the primary language of many predominantly Hasidic neighborhoods, where it is commonly taught as a first language and used in schools and social settings.
