Story of the Yiddish language

DOWNEY - Old wives' tales will be discussed when the Ezra Center for Mature Adults meets Tuesday at Temple Ner Tamid in Downey.Ann Nanes, founder of the Yiddish Club at the Ezra Center in Anaheim, will entertain with stories and anecdotes about Jewish life and the Yiddish language as it once was and is now being rediscovered in the 21st century. Interest in the language is being reborn, Nanes said, and Yiddish words - such as "shlep" - have crept into daily use. The program begins at 10:30 a.m. and is open to the public. A catered kosher lunch will be served at 12 p.m. Cost is $6 for Ezra members and $7 for non-members. For more information, call Miriam Brookfield at (562) 943-3170.
