  • Maykhl (tasty dish) Ripinyik: Esti Shnek from Haifa, Israel, originally from Jasina, Czechoslovakia (pre-WWII), starts our mini series on a mysterious Yiddish word. She recalls a baked dish named "Ripinyik", a Yiddish word that seems to be only known to former inhabitants of the shtetl Jasina (as it was known in pre-WWII Czechoslovakia): listen to the recipe: if you have heard of this dish by another name, or you've heard of this dish by this name, please contact the Yiddish Voice and let us know: radio@yv.org More info on this "maykhl" will be given in a later broadcast.

Air Date: August 9, 2017
