CELEBRATE YIDDISH! with Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus at Congregation Or Shalom, 205 Old Grassy Hill Road, Orange, on Wednesday, April 11, 11 a.m. – noon
Come, celebrate Yiddish! You don’t have to speak Yiddish to enjoy this event! You’ll be amazed at how much Yiddish you already know! Before long, you’ll be laughing at Yiddish jokes and singing Yiddish songs with the Rabbi and his guitar.
“…I hate to kvetch, but why schlep all the way there when we can nosh and schmooze right here? (Besides, I’m Schvitzing like a Chazer!) … Anyway, as I was saying: I thought my bobe knew bupkis about music, but she played like a maven last night! Go figure!  And you know, everyone in the mishpoche regards her as a real mensch!…”  
Did you know that all the italicized words and expressions above, and hundreds like them, are considered correct English usage, found in American dictionaries?
Especially during this week of Holocaust remembrance, let’s celebrate Yiddish!
This is a joint event co-sponsored by Congregation Or Shalom & The Institute for Learning in Retirement (ILR)
