Overview

How to Talk Jewish, a guide to 100 Yiddish words, phrases, and expressions, includes pronunciations, definitions, and examples of usage, along with Jackie's incomparable wit.

Jackie Mason brings all the variety, spunk, and chutzpah of Yiddish to the tongues of the less fortunate. Don't be a meshugenner, buy it already!

Using his hilarious and insightful wit to explain the meaning of every term he covers, Jackie Mason offers a picture window into a world of words that only he could elucidate. From yenta to schtick, Mason gives not only the literal meaning of Yiddish words and phrases, but, as an added attraction, his own interpretive explanation.
