Humor and Heart from the Old Country
Illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal
Decade after decade, Yiddish proverbs continue to capture the humor, warmth and traditions of Jewish life. Now, the beloved Yiddish Wisdom has been expanded to include even more proverbs and fresh illustrations to be cherished by a new generation. With more than 150 folk sayings translated into Yiddish and English— from the whimsical and witty (Dress up a broom and it will also look nice /Az men batziert a bezem iz er oich shain) to the poignant (When one must, one can/Az me muz, ken men) and practical (When you look to the heights, hold on to your hat/Az du kukst oif hoicheh zachen, halt tsu dos hitl )—this treasured volume is the perfect gift for any celebration.
