Profile

Yiddish is a part of the Germanic language group. Yiddish is written with the Hebrew alphabet but it borrows heavily from the German language, making it to some degree mutually intelligible with German.

In Europe, Yiddish is recognized as a minority language in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania and Sweden.
