The Yiddish Version Of A Philanthropist!!

YIDDISH Has Gone Meshuga!! Everyone Suddenly Wants To Learn Yiddish!! I Guess Because Yiddish In 10 Lessons Is The Best Yiddish Program On The Market!! Before You Know It, You Might Converse In Yiddish Like A Pro!! Listen To The CD In The Car!! Join The Crowds!!

this week's interpretation
ער איז א פילאַנטראָפּ; ער רעדט פיל און גיט אַ טראָפּ

er iz a filantrop; er redt fil un git a trop

the saying actually means
he is a philanthropist; he talk much and gives a drop
(in Yiddish a filantrop the word fil means a lot and trop means a drop)

translated to Hebrew
הוא פילנטרופ; מדבר הרבה ונותן טיפה
(משחק מילים - פיל ביידיש זה מלא או הרבה וטראָפּ זה טיפה)
