    this weeks' proverb
    וואָס מערער אַ מענטש גיט הבטחות, אַלץ קנאַפּער די וואָס האָבּן צוטרוי צו אים

    transliterated
    vos merer a mentsh git havtokhes, alts kna'per di vos hobn tsutroy tsu em

    the proverb actually means
    the more a person makes promises, the less people trust him
    (talk is cheap – actions speak louder than words)

    translated to Hebrew
    מה שיותר האדם נותן הבטחות, פחות אנשים נותנים בו אימון
