Yiddish Expressions 1.25

Master the Yiddish language with
 "Yiddish In 10 Lessons"


one who has gone through a myriad of jobs – flit from one ideology to another

אחד שעבד בכל מיני עבודות – מי שעובר מאידיאולוגיה אחת לשניה




געדינט אלע עבודה זרות

gedint a'le avoyde zores

worshipped all of the various idols

עבד כל העבודות זרות




Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
