Yiddish Expressions 3.8

Yiddish In 10 Lessons!! Not Only For Chanukah!!
A Great Way To Express Yourself!!  In YIDDISH!!

Express It In Yiddish:
ignore, disregard on purpose, pay no attention to, take no notice, turn a blind eye or a deaf ear to

להתעלם בכוונה, לא לשים לב , עושה עצמו כאילו לא רואה



מאַכן זיך נישט וויסנדיק

makhn zikh nisht visndik

feign ignorence

לעשות עצמו כאילו לא שם לב



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
