someone/something, an organization or a company without direction or goal, losing the way, off course, doesn't know one's destination

אַ שיף אָן אַ רודער

a shif on a ruder

a ship without a rudder

ספינה ללא הגה

Rudder a vertical blade at the stern of a vessel that can be turned horizontally to change the vessel's direction when in motion.

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.
