this week's proverb
אַ יונגערמאַן רעדט וועגן דעם וואָס ער טוט, אַן אַלטער מאַן – וועגן דעם וואָס ער האָט געטאָן, אַ נאַר – וועגן דעם וואָס ער האָט געקענט טאָן

transliterated
a yungerman redt vegn dem vos er tut, an alter man – vegn dem
vos erhot geton, a nar – vegm dem vos er hot gekent ton

the proverb actually means
a young man talks about the things he does. An old man talks about the things he had done, a fool talks about the things he could have done

translated to Hebrew
אברך צעיר מדבר על הדברים שהוא עושה, זקן – על הדברים שעשה, טיפש – על הדברים שיוכל היה לעשות
