Item description for How To Speak Jewish by Joanie Chura...
Overview Chura reveals the origin and meaning of Jewish words, Jewish customs, festivals, foods (including recipes), and just about everything else Jewish.
Publishers Description Have you ever used the word, "Kosher," or "Klutz," or "schlep," or chatchke"? Of course you have, and we hear them so often that I bet you think they are English. Well guess what, they're Jewish (or Yiddish if you prefer), and they are not only indispensable (can you imagine life without them?), but they tell us a lot about the Jewish culture, the Jewish mind, and the Jewish funny bone. In this book you will discover the origin and meaning of Jewish words, and learn about Jewish customs, the Jewish Festivals, Jewish foods (including recipes), and just about everything else Jewish -- from a certified Brooklyn-born Jew. The adorable illustrations are by my husband, Robert, who was not born Jewish, but we adopted him. Anyone who reads this book, and eats bagels and chicken soup, will be adopted into the Jewish family.
