By LOUIS PANUSH

"A Yiddish Word Book for
English-Speaking People,"
written by Samuel Rosen-
baum, has recently been
published by Van Nostrand
Reinghold.
Why should a well-known
publishing company which
specializes in books on sci-
ence and technology,
medicine, business and
management publish a
Yiddish word book? Are
there enough readers
among the professions,
businessmen, doctors,
executives, engineers, etc.
to justify such a publica-
tion? Evidently the pub-
lishers had that in mind,
since Yiddish is heard and
spoken in contemporary
American speech and many
non-Jews have professional,
business and social contacts
with Jews who have or use a
greater or lesser Yiddish
vocabulary.
The author and the pub-
lishers also had in mind the
great number of Jews who
"want to use Yiddish words

pletely new approaches to
research in this field. Prof.
Sachs has trained many
students and founded new
schools of biology in Israel
and abroad."
A milestone in Prof.
Sachs' research is his
series of experiments
showing that cancer cells
can be made to behave
again like normal cells.
He is now continuing this
work in order to apply his
findings to the control of
cancer. Prof. Sachs is

also developing a general
theory which he hopes
will throw new light on
the origin and progres-
sion of cancer and cur-
rently he is engaged in
obtaining further evi-
dence for this project.

Back in the 1950s, he also
demonstrated that human
amniotic fluid can serve a
diagnostic purpose, a tech-
nique now widely used for
the prenatal determination
of congenital disease.

and expressions in their
conversations and corre-
spondence with a full
understanding of what they
are saying, or what someone
else is saying to them." And,
in addition, there are many
college students who are
learning Yiddish, Yiddish-
speaking groups on the
campuses, and those who
read Philip Roth, Saul Be-
llow, Bashevis Singer, and
others and want to better
understand the hundreds of
Yiddish words they find —
the vulgar as well as the
poignant — and positive
images and concepts they
represent.
This wordbook contains
more than 200 Yiddish
entries, including some of
the most common words,
popular and useful folk ex-
pressions, idioms and
proverbs which can be
heard in the Yiddish of lit-
erate and not-so-literate
Jews. It is followed by an
English-Yiddish section to
help the user locate the
Yiddish equivalent of
English words.
The spelling of the Yid-
dish words follows the
transliteration used by
YIVO which is acknowl-
edged by literate Yid-
dishists. Many words
have more than one
transliteration, espe-
cially those derived from
the Hebrew. There are
several pronunciations
or letter combinations
that might represent the
sound of the Yiddish
word.
(Although many words
have the Hebrew origin in
its Israeli pronunciation
given in parentheses, a
number of words do not
have it, and that is missed.)
Although comic and often
vulgar words are included
— and we could do without
them — they are included
because Americans learned
them from their Yiddish-
speaking friends and from
the stand-up comedians on
the stage, TV and in the
movies. Often these express
concepts, traits and exple-
tives which cannot be
adequately described in
English.
This reviewer was par-
ticularly pleased with the

fine Yiddish proverbs,
aphorisms and "lines from
my mother's lips." It evoked
memories of home, the
shtetl, the market place, the
bet hamidrash, the gather-
ings at the homes of
grandparents and family,
and my parents' Yiddish.
Although I remember
the curses listed in the
added section — they are
in the ratio of 3 to 1 to the
blessings listed — why
enumerate them? Should
the readers, for whom the
book is intended, learn
and know them? The vul-
garity could have been
dispensed with. But it is
only a minor irritation.
This wordbook is far from
being an exhaustive dictio-
nary. Yet it is a very wel-
come addition to the knowl-
edge of the language, its zaf-
tikeit, its richness, and re-
flection of a once-vibrant
way of life. This reviewer
re-read it several times, and
every time found it more
enjoyable and rewarding.

Born in Leipzig, Germany
in 1924, Prof. Sachs moved
to England in 1933 and re-
ceived his PhD from the
University of Cambridge. In
1952 he came to Israel —
and to the Weizmann Insti-
tute — where he sub-
sequently established the
Department of Genetics and
Virology.
He is the recipient of
many honors including the
1972 Israel Prize for
Natural Sciences, the 1972
Harvey Lecture and the
1977 Rothschild Prize in the
Biological Sciences.

There are 39 books in the
Hebrew Bible.
