I laughed at the windscreen wipers nugget in the PR thread - as an example of what's in the book that's great, I added it as a footnote if you don't mind. If you do, it'll begone in a flashsmiley - wizard

Otherwise I just added a few h2g2 links.

smiley - cheers

I'm glad you liked this one. Yiddish has been dear to my heart, since I learned it at universit(ies) the same way this author did. smiley - smiley You're right: he's definitely making a difference.

Sometime when you have time, you might want to view Leonard Nimoy's oral history for the Yiddish Book Center.

It's been awhile since I watched it, but I'm pretty sure he explains where he got the Vulcan salute from. smiley - winkeye An Orthodox synagogue when he was a child and peeked during the Cohen's blessing.

I learned it from a very scholarly man in Cologne, Germany, who was teaching me to read 18th-century Yiddish. He didn't know why I stared like that when he showed me the blessing. He'd never heard of Star Trek, you see, and I wasn't about to tell him. smiley - rofl
