Decade after decade, Yiddish proverbs continue to capture
the humor, warmth, and traditions of Jewish life. Now, the
beloved Yiddish Wisdom (more than 100,000 copies sold)
has been expanded with even more proverbs and fresh
illustrations to be cherished by a new generation. With more
than 150 folk sayings translated in Yiddish and English—
from the whimsical and witty (Dress up a broom and it will
also look nice /Az men batziert a bezem iz er oich shain) to
the poignant (When one must, one can/Az me muz, ken men)
and practical (When you look to the heights, hold on to your
hat/Az du kukst oif hoicheh zachen, halt tsu dos hitl )—this
treasured volume is the perfect gift for any celebration.
