WHY YIDDISH - אַרוואָס ייִדיש

Yiddish is a 1000 year old Eastern European Jewish language 

with a rich history and literature  

"My first story made a big impact on the Jewish masses and was soon published in a third edition... and then in a fourth edition... That story laid the cornerstone of Modern Yiddish Literature. From then on, my soul desired Yiddish, and I dedicated myself to it..."

                                                           

                                                       (Mendele Moykhe Sforim, Jew in the Modern World, pg. 382)
