A cheerful lexicon of Yiddish words which have become part of the English language, plus English words & phrases which have been transformed into Yinglish; the whole garnished with stories, jokes, parables, reverent quotations from the Talmud & a glittering gallery of writers, rabbis, sages, wits, with impulsive side trips into the faith, folklore, genius & history of the Jews-from their servitude in Babylon to their magnitude in Beverly Hills.
