Topic Wiki

So I've been getting lots of requests for a thread like this, I suppose I'll try to give it a go. Most of my more interesting statuses are posted in places with terrible internet connections, and it's hard enough to put it on both Whatsapp and Instagram. But let's give it a shot and see how it goes.

If you want to see my statuses directly you can Whatsapp me a request to be added, see my contact info via my signature below. You can also follow me on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/morrishersko/, the stories are typically very similar to the Whatsapp statuses.

I'm curious, do the Lubavitchers here need translation when reading this version of Yiddish?

(Important to note, it's not the everyday spoken Yiddish, not even close, it's a writing slang style loaded with מליצות and I actually wonder where this style originates from?)

There's a wide range of Lubavitchers, from those who grow up speaking Yiddish in the house, to those that went to schools with no secular studies, to OOT tzugekumeners like me who went to litvak elementary schools and Chabad high schools that taught secular studies over Yiddish.

But yes, I can read this without translation :D

I'd copy/paste it here but saving and uploading his photos is a bit of a hassle. What do you guys think, is there a clientele here on DDF who will enjoy it? @Something Fishy ?

Like Dan said, we're on the a spectrum. I get ~90%. Ironically, I probably would do better than my wife who grew up speaking only Yiddish, but hers is a very Russian Yiddish and includes words like maitchke, maladyetz, and, of course, kvort.

At the risk of asking what type of soup it was, is it common to use "כשר" for Sukkos?

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
