and particularly Yiddishists (writers, scholars, etc.): what are some good books about Yiddish language and culture? More specifically, books that would be suited to someone (me) taking an introductory Yiddish course in the fall.

Hey , my direct ancestor was the rabbi, the Taz, who sent his talmidim to Turkey to check out if the Shabbetai Tzvi was for real in 1666. "No sheyd," but spoiler alert, he wasn't the messiah.

Sometimes I think about the time Will said, "A Jewish guy won a bar fight, it's news everywhere," and I picture Josh smiling knowingly. Like, has there ever been a fistfight on Simchas Torah when everyone's had too much schnapps and it smells like herring? 🔯

Okay, tweeple, I'm logging off technology soon for Shabbat. Please DON'T DO ANYTHING HORRIFYING while I'm out. I'm looking at you, celebs who end up tweeting antisemitic memes. Keep it together. It's been a rough week.

Let's play a round of You Might be an Antisemite!!! If you're upset about the death threats against me my hubby and my kids because the news coverage legitimizes Jews.

Story time! Write what you know. One time, a stranger in a FB comment feed noticed I was from my comments and asked if I knew that Jesus was a Jew. 1/

Ask me how many times my kids (7 and 10) have been told, in person, by friends that they are going to hell. They are going to have a heck of a lot to write about someday.

We have at least 3 guests with yiddisher kops lined up for podcast. But first I think maybe we should have some l'chaims and record an intro episode . Let's schmooze!

You should try Judaism. Where you always answer a question with another question. Maybe famous Jewish doctors taught this to the world? Who was Maimonides?

I gave him my heart, he gave me an antisemitic meme complete with "follow the money" & a neo-Nazi quote, blamed it on a bot & called it an apology. I would've preferred a pen. 🔯

YES YES YES YES thank you . I appreciate the support from when I share about these things. But frankly, it never gets as much attention as it shld. And we feel pretty alone with it all and are kinda used to it by now? 😬

Screaming! I did a thing. I made some merch and now it's live! Get your tee! A good deal. Sorry we can't negotiate, this isn't the shuk.

I don't know why everyone else's DMs have d-pics. My DMs are full of fascinating conversations about literature, querying, and Jewish life. Should I be insulted? 😏
