The Joys of Yiddish by Leo Rosten (1968)
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671785052, Paperback)A relaxed lexicon of Yiddish, Hebrew and Yinglish words often encountered in English, plus dozens that ought to be, with serendipitous excursions into Jewish humor, habits, holidays, history, religion, ceremonies, folklore, and cuisine; the whole generously garnished with stories, anecdotes, epigrams, Talmudic quotations, folk sayings and jokes--from the days of the Bible to those of the beatnik.
