A monumental achievement based on a lifetime of labor by Dr. Mordkhe Schaechter, one of the greatest Yiddish lexicographers in modern times. This dictionary will be indispensable to those who study, speak, and write Yiddish. Never again will mockers and scoffers be able to say ‘there is no word for that in Yiddish.’
