“No Goy speaks Yiddish or Lashon Hakodesh …. This puts Yiddish on a higher level of holiness… “

That may make it special to you, but that does not make it Kodesh.

  1. Pagans did sacrifices and we did also. Do their practices make ours any less Kodesh because of less exclusivity?
  2. Only Jews eat gefilte fish. Is gefilte fish now holy?
  3. How about Lashon Hara and Nivul Peh in Yiddush – any kedushah there?


Kedushah comes from Torah and Mitzvot. Cultural norms are just neutral.

BTW, the answer to my 3 rhetorical questions above are all “no”.
