Yiddish for Yeshivah Bachurim
Though the Yiddish language took a heavy toll during the Holocaust, when most of its speakers were lost, the language is still commonly used to give shiurim or musar shmuessn in yeshivos. Unfortunately, many English-speaking yeshiva-students, though they already know many Yiddish words, and even incorporate them into their English, are unable to understand a full shiur given in Yiddish.
The purpose of this guide is to teach enough vocabulary and grammar to understand a Yiddish shiur.
