Take the Yiddish Word Quiz with Amy Walker


How's your Yiddish? Well, BimBam, the nonprofit website that sparks connections to Judaism through digital storytelling for learners of all ages, went to Los Angeles to meet fellow YouTuber Amy Walker. They developed this gameshow-like video that teaches you popular Yiddish words.

We've always been surprised at how many Jews of all ages have a limited familiarity with the Yiddish language, so we're supporting websites, theatre, film, and other cultural venues that increase exposure to this rich and often funny language.

Amy Walker is an actress, singer and voiceover artist. She's been featured on TEDx, the TODAY Show, NPR, Inside Edition, and more. Her online videos have garnered over 40 million views on YouTube and beyond, from the viral "21 Accents", to memorable characters, songs, and inspirational insights.

Enjoy!
