Magnetic Poetry - Yiddish
Over 240 words.
Yiddish, the language of European Jewry, is based in German with elements of Hebrew as well as Aramaic, Slavic, and Romance languages. Though it reached its height as a language before World War II, it is experiencing a renaissance today. American English is peppered with common Yiddishism such as deli, shmooze, glitch, maven and shmuck. This kit contains a mix of Yiddish and English words and comes with a mini Yiddish dictionary, allowing everybody to join in the fridge door kibitz!
Welcome to the World of Magnetic Poetry! Inside the box are hundreds of carefully selected magnetic word tiles ready to install on your fridge or any steel surface. Poetry will almost magically emerge as you arrange the words into phrases, with results ranging from the bizarre to the profound.
