Oy vey, there are so many great Yiddish words. In the Yiddish-English dictionary, almost every entry under “S” is a good one — schmear, shicksa, shekel. And don't get me started on the “G”s. Yiddishkayt, the organization that promotes Yiddish language and culture, debuts a new and original band, ¡Viva Yiddish! Project! Dance your tuchus off to this latest craze of Yiddish-Latino music making its world premiere. Only in L.A., folks.
