Several years ago, I started sending my grandsons a daily email for the sole purpose of letting them know I was thinking of them and loved them. The email closed with the above. It was important to me they be reminded of their heritage and a Yiddish closing was the way to do it. Zayde had died but he was still very much alive in our hearts and I saw no reason to stop sending them his love.

After a while, in addition to the daily greeting, I started sending a Yiddish word or phrase with pronunciation and definition. I told a few people about the daily Yiddish and they, too, wanted a dose. They told their friends and their friends wanted Yiddish. A "class" was born and as of this writing (June 2020), there are 52 getting a daily dose of Yiddish. Many are not Jewish and I do not know everyone; however, everyone takes it seriously and will sometimes ask if I have a Yiddish word for something on their minds. "Zei gezunt und zei mir frailich, mein kinderlach. Be well and be happy, my children," ends the daily dose of Yiddish.
