A Taste of Yiddish 4.49

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!! By The End Of Summer You Might Converse In Yiddish Like A Pro!! Listen To The CD In The Car!! Join The Crowds!!

this week's proverb
דער אמת איז ווי אַ רעגן; פיל קוקן אויס אויף אים ווי אויף אַ
ישועה, און קוים קומט ער אָן, אַנטלויפט מען פון אים

der emes iz azoy vi a regn; fil kukn oys af em vi af a yeshu'e, un kam kumt er on, antloyft men fun em

the proverb actually means
truth is like a rain; many look toward it as a salvation, and when it finally arrives, they run for cover

translated to Hebrew
האמת הוא כמו גשם – הרבה מצפים לו כישועה וכשהוא כבר מגיע בורחים ממנו
