    Hebrew is even awesomer. because haShem’s blueprint A.K.A. The Torah is written in Hebrew.

    This is in addition to the # of roots & nouns etc. that share common letters and hence are interconnected, so Hebrew is the awesomest of all languages.

    Herr Toi, Yiddish is a dialect of the German language and is readily understood by any German. Any awesomeness of Yiddish is actually awesomeness of German. All this adulation of Yiddish is based on thin air!

    You are not missing much, Yiddish is just a Pidgeon German. If you like to hear German Spoken, you will like to hear Yiddish spoken

    So what if Yiddish is a pidgeon of German with large chunks of Hebrew, and smaller chunks of Aramaic, Old French and miscellaneous Slavic languages throw in. English is also a pidgeon of German with large chunks of Hebrew, a few traces of various Celtic dialects and misc. pieces from other languages thrown in for flavoring (including many Hebrew and Yiddish words).

    The point is that (if you are Ashkenazi), Yiddish is our pidgeon, and no one else’s. It is the language our ancestors spoke for 800 years. While all our important literary and scholarly works were in Hebrew (similarly, almost nothing of significance was written in English for 400 years after the Norman conquest, and serious scholarship didn’t beging to appear in English until the end of the 18th century), but Yiddish (or for the Anglo-Americans, English) was the language people ate and breathed in. It is the language the best reflects our cultural and religious traditions. This is the reason so many Yiddish words entered our English disalect as well as modern Hebrew.

    My family has been speaking English for over 100 years (My family predates WW I in the US) . They have eaten and breathed English since around the year 1900.

    Frankly the fact of the matter is the world is getting smaller , people need to comunicate with each other especially from other countries. Languages are disappearing as people need more world languages.

    Very few peope speak Yiddish anymore, its a hinderance instead of a help. And if you want to tell me its the Jewish Langua Franca, Actually its Hebrew not Yiddish today. I speak Hebrew and have used it to speak to jews from other countries many of whom werent even Ashkenazic
