More than a quarter of a century ago, Leo Rosten published the first comprehensive and hilariously entertaining lexicon of the colorful and deeply expressive language of Yiddish. Said “to give body and soul to the Yiddish language,” The Joys of Yiddish went on to become an indispensable tool for writers, journalists, politicians, and students, as well as a perennial bestseller for three decades. Rosten described his book as “a relaxed lexicon of Yiddish, Hebrew, and Yinglish words often encountered in English, plus dozens that ought to be, with serendipitous excursions into Jewish humor, habits, holidays, history, religion, ceremonies, folklore, and cuisine–the whole generously garnished with stories, anecdotes, epigrams, Talmudic quotations, folk sayings, and jokes.” To this day, it is considered the seminal work on Yiddish in America–a true classic and a staple in the libraries of Jews and non-Jews alike. With the recent renaissance of interest in Yiddish, and in keeping with a language that embodies the variety and vibrancy of life itself, The New Joys of Yiddish brings Leo Rosten’s masterful work up to date. Revised for the first time by Lawrence Bush in close consultation with Rosten’s daughters, it retains the spirit of the original–with its wonderful jokes, tidbits of cultural history, Talmudic and Biblical references, and tips on pronunciation–and enhances it with hundreds of new entries, thoughtful commentary on how Yiddish has evolved over the years, and an invaluable new English-to-Yiddish index. In addition, The New Joys of Yiddish includes wondrous and amusing illustrations by renowned artist R.O. Blechman.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: sehr gut, University of Freiburg, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Origins: Yiddish is the historic language of Asheknazic (Central and East European) Jews, and is the third principal literary language in Jewish history, after classical Hebrew and (Jewish) Aramaic. The language is characterized by a synthesis of Germanic (the major component, derived from medieval German city dialects, themselves recombined) with Hebrew and Aramaic. Scholars tend to locate the origins of Yiddish in the Rhineland, where a handwritten prayer book from 1272 was found in the city of Worms containing the earliest known written Yiddish sentence. 2 Yiddish has a particular tradition: it took root and flowered in the ghettos (from Venetian gheto, a foundry on a small island where in XVI Jews were confined3), starting in walled juderías in Spain in the thirteenth century (according to the Lateran Councils of 1179 and 1215 it was forbidden to Jews to live close to Christians and in 1555 Paul IV ordered segregated quarters for Jews in the Papal States).

Der Erste Weltkrieg und die nachfolgende Friedensordnung veränderten historisch gewachsene Regionen und Siedlungsgemeinschaften in Ostmittel-, Ost- und Südosteuropa nachhaltig. Während lang gehegte nationale Aspirationen verwirklicht werden konnten und die neuen Staatsvölker in Aufbruchstimmung versetzten, wurden vormalige Staatsvölker zu Minderheiten und begriffen ihre neue Situation als krisenhaft; dies galt insbesondere für die Deutschen im östlichen Europa. Die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Krieg und seinen Auswirkungen in Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft prägte die Zwischenkriegszeit. Aufbruchstimmung und Krisenerfahrung spiegelten sich im Widerstreit zwischen modernen Bestrebungen und rückwärtsgewandten Ideologien - vor allem auch auf kulturellem Gebiet in Literatur, Architektur, bildender Kunst, in Film, Theater und Wissenschaften. In Fallstudien analysieren die Beiträge des vorliegenden Bandes individuell geformte, gesellschaftlich bedingte sowie staatlich gelenkte Strategien der Auseinandersetzung mit der Nachkriegssituation in Ostmitteleuropa. Beiträge von Johanna Brade, Marion Brandt, Brigitte Braun, Gertrude Cepl-Kaufmann, Helmut Freiwald, Jacek Friedrich, Michael Garleff, Sewerin Gawlitta, Maria Gierlak, Regina Hartmann, Alena Janatková, Zoran Janjetovic, Jürgen Joachimsthaler, Ryszard Kaczmarek, Mart Kalm, Róbert Keményfi, Konrad Köstlin, Primus-Heinz Kucher, Wojciech Kunicki, Olga Kurilo, Beata Lakeberg, Harald Lönnecker, Petr Lozoviuk, Tomasz Majewski, Jochen Oltmer, Malgorzata Omilanowska, Miroslaw Ossowski, Marek Podlasiak, Karsten Rinas, Matthias Schöning, Stefan Sienerth, Pascal Trees, Katharina Wessely, Anja Wilhelmi, Karolina Zimna-Kawecka
