I don’t speak much Yiddish, but I do understand a bunch of it. I’m a big music fan (a relative has described me as an Encyclopedia of Jewish Music, although I must say I’m out of date now), and there are a bunch of songs I like that are in Yiddish. I’ll share some of my favorites (the ones I can remember off the top of my head), and I’d like to hear some favorites from other people.
Here’s some of my favorites:
In a Vinkalah (D’veykus)
Mi Kiamcha Yisrael (MBD)
The Gedolei Hador (Miami Boys Choir)

I recently got ahold of a copy of an album I had when I was a kid. There is a Yiddish song on it which I remember I liked when I was young. Now that I can actually understand it a bit, I can fully appreciate it. It’s called Rosh HaShanah in Berditchev, and it’s about a conversation between R’ Levi Yitzchak and Hashem on Rosh HaShanah.
There’s one part which I love. I don’t remember the exact Yiddish words, so here’s a translation (which I’m not 100% sure I got correct):
In one place in the Torah, you wrote “Yom Teruah yihyeh lachem”. Now, look at what your children are doing for it! For one small verse, I blew 100 kolos! For 2,000 years, we’ve been begging every day to hear just one tekiah from you, Hashem! Please, let us hear just one tekiah from you – tekah b’shofer gadol l’cheiruseinu!August 5, 2013 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #969551ToiParticipant

This was a great song about what is really important, nice and sweet. I know about half the words and would love to find the rest of the song but I don’t know where it comes from. Has anyone else ever heard this song?August 5, 2013 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #969553LevAryehMember
