This video provides a joyous journey through the culture and language of Yiddish. Through interviews with author Leo Rosten and actors Herschel Bernardi and David Steinberg, along with excerpts from Yiddish films, this documentary evokes the pleasures of this unique language. Yiddish was the language spoken by the majority of Jews who immigrated to the U.S. from Europe, and its impact and delights are with us to this day.
