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!! Before You Know It, You Might Converse In Yiddish Like A Pro!! Listen To The CD In The Car!! Join The Crowds!!

this week's saying
דער מענטש האָט צוויי בּרירות; קריעה רײַסן אָדער פאַרשוואַרצט

der mentsh hot tsvey breyres; kri'e raysn oder farshvartst vern

the saying actually means
a person has two options: either to rent your garments (a process done after burying the dead(cut your losses)) or make your life misrable

translated to Hebrew
בפני אנשים עומדות שתי ברירות; או לקרוע קריעה (לחתוך ענין, לדעת מתי לצאת מעיסקה אפילו בהפסד) או לחיות חיים אומללים (להמשיך להשקיע ולהישאר אומלל)
