Summary:An expressive hybrid with roots in German, Hebrew, and Slavic languages, Yiddish has been shamed, banned, and nearly wiped out, but in fact it's a vernacular with rich political, historical, religious, socio-economic and literary import. In Nurith Aviv's documentary, seven young interviewees--some Jews and some not--share their love for the Yiddish language.
