Yiddish


The Yiddish language dates back to about the 9th century. It was developed mainly from Middle High German and spoken by Jews in Germany. Yiddish was also infused with Hebrew words and it is written using the Hebrew alphabet. It also shows a strong Slavic influence.

After Jews migrated across Europe in the late Middle Ages, Yiddish became the Jewish vernacular language in both Europe and the Americas.
