The language is most definitely not from the torah, it uses words of the torah and many times contorts their meaning.
In addition, the language was intended with the express purpose of promoting an anti-torah philosophy. That in itself makes it unholy.
The Rambam would be referring to an actual holy tongue, not that trash.
R' Ahron Kotler himself ruled it was assur for the Bais Yaakov to teach in that language.
Someone should tell Rav Kanievsky shlita.

I never said it's assur to speak. But it doesn't meet the criteria of a holy language.

I think he was the best speaker of all. They should've gave him the most time.

I think the stadium was the quietest when he spoke.

Incredible! But I found some guys treating it like a sports game? Waiving your hands to the camera?

I left after the dancing but it should be noted that only one speech was in Yiddish to that point.

I would also comment that there are women who learn as well, whether daf yomi or otherwise, with the blessing of Talmidei Chachamim, and even if the Aguda doesn't want to publically recognize that reality, they would be wise to at least tone down the "wives of learners" rhetoric.

It's a much bigger mitzvah to be "wives of learners" than a woman who learns.
