this week's proverb
אָפט, גייען מיר ווײַט זוכן דאָס, וואָס מיר האָבּן בּײַ זיך אינדערהיים

oft geyen mir vayt zukhn dos' vos mir hobn ba zukh inderheym

the proverb actually means
often we travel far, in search, for that, which we have in our own home.

translated to Hebrew
לעיתים אנחנו מחפשים במרחקים את מה שיש לנו בבית

איינעם דאַכט זיך אַז בּײַ יענעם לאַכט זיך

eynem dakht zikh az ba yenem lakht zikh

translated to English
one seems to think that others are always laughing
(grass is greener on the other side of the fence)

in Hebrew
אחד חושב שאצל השני צוחקים (תמיד שמח)
(הדשא של השכן ירוק יותר)
