hi Members Of The Mishpocheh
Join For Holiday Dinner

Each month in this space,
L'Chayim will present a Yiddish
lesson entitled "Du Redst Yiddish
(Do You Speak Yiddish)" whose aim
is to encourage further study of
Yiddish. The lesson will include a
brief story utilizing the Yiddish
words to be studied, a vocabulary
list with English translations and a
family activity which involves using
the new words. Two books which
may be helpful for beginning
Yiddish students are Yiddish for
Beginners by Dr. Joffen and Der
Yiddisher Lerer by Goldin.
Weinreich's English-Yiddish
Dictionary also may be useful. At
the conclusion of each lesson will
be a suggested list of books for
persons who wish to further their
knowledge.

The lessons were prepared by
Mary Koretz of Oak Park. She has
taught both children's and adult
classes in Yiddish at the Workmen's
Circle and at the Midrasha-College
of Jewish Studies.
Following is this month's lesson:
The mameh decided to invited
the gantzeh mishpocheh over for
Rosh Hashanah dinner. She invited
her shvester and her bruder. The
tateh invited the machatonim of his
zun and tochter. They also invited
the mumeh (tanteh) and the feter
feter and the shvesterkind. Of
course, they invited the bubeh and
the zaydeh. The machutin and
machetenisteh (machetonim)
couldn't come because they had
invited their tochter and aydim,
their son and shnur. Everyone else

came and they all ushered in the
New Year together.
