Yiddish Phrases

Hurrah – a dictionary for Yiddish phrases. These particular ones caught my eye:

NOODGE: To bother, to push, a person who bothers you.

NUDNIK: A pest, a persistent and annoying person.

PISHER: A bed-wetter, a young inexperienced person, a person of no consequence.


  • Miserable

    please, please, please tell me what "oy vey" or "Oivay" means? Its driving me nuts trying to figure it out. Many thanks.

  • From the link above: OY VEY: "Oh, how terrible things are".


  • not so Miserable now

    Many thanks. I clicked on everything there is to click on on the web. Except *that* link which specfically says "Yiddish Phrases". Go figure…
