Berit Engen WEFT and D'RASH – A Thousand Jewish Tapestries

YIDDISHE CURSES 
A Study in Browns and Blues


         “God protect us from goyishe hands and Jewish tongues!” (“Got zol op’hitn fun goyishe hent un yidishe reyd!”) No wonder this saying came into being. The curses, Yiddish prophesies of doom – although mostly unfulfillable – are vividly painted and hilarious. Add to that the sound  of the curses when exclaimed in the original language, and one easily gains an understanding of differences in cultural sensibilities.
