This week’s Jewish terminology word is: mama loshen (MAH-meh LAW-shen)

Shalom Children of G-d! Welcome back to Marie Speaks G-d’s Grace Bible Study.

I do pray everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I pray others had a chance to review all the wonderful and spiritual aspects of the Biblical Feast and Jewish Traditional Holidays. I find that every season I learn and relearn something new and fun about the Jewish Holidays and Biblical Feast. For example, I laughed when I learned I had been lighting my menorah incorrectly.

For some reason I remember lighting the menorah from right to left, but in class when my Rabbi said the menorah was lit from left to right….. I was so very happy that the classes are online and no one could see how red with embarrassment my face must have been.

I wasn’t the only one in the class or as I saw online that was doing the lighting incorrectly as I found out later, but boy did I have a little chuckler over my silliness. One I saw I was being competitive with my self again. Two I seeing how much serving G-D means to me. I think it’s nice to be reminded in general.. that I’m not perfect and hey that is ok because not only does G-D not require me to be, but neither is anyone else.

Another thing I learned or relearned this holidays season is that even when there is joy there can be pain, but how we react determines the final out come or at least determine the bumpiness of the road.

Long story short, my beautiful wonderful huge sweet fun everything awesome dog died. His name was Jamieson and I miss him so very much.

2022, honestly was already such a difficult year for me personally and to have the year end with the death of my lovely Jamieson…ugh it hurt.

The I am very grateful that G-D allowed my sweet boy in my life for 9 years, but for me… there is never enough time with a loved one. It hurts so very much when that time is ended.. i don’t like this part of life, but change is always changing and time seems to keep running.

I believe that animals have spirits, because of G-D being all of our creator. So, I do have faith when earth is made like it been soon in our days…… maybe my sweet boy will be at my Spanish villa waiting for me. And we can hike and play like when was he was young again. #thankyouHaShem for love and time and for my sweet boy Jamieson. Amen and Amen

Today we are going to go over our Jewish terminology for the week.

This weeks word is: mama loshen (MAH-meh LAW-shen)

Yiddish word that literally means mother tongue. Mama loshen is refer to the Yiddish language itself. Well, Hebrew was taught only to men for their study of the holy books, Yiddish was the everyday language for home and of women. As defined in my personally owned The JPS Dictionary of Jewish Words by Joyce Eisenberg and Ellen Scolnic 2001 copyright 1st edition.

The History of Yiddish

In its 1,000-plus-year history, the Yiddish language has been called many things, including the tender name mameloshen (mother tongue), the adversarial moniker zhargon (jargon) and the more matter-of-fact Judeo-German.

What is Yiddish?

Literally speaking, Yiddish means “Jewish.” Linguistically, it refers to the language spoken by Ashkenazi Jews — Jews from Central and Eastern Europe, and their descendants. Though its basic vocabulary and grammar are derived from medieval West German, Yiddish integrates many languages including German, Hebrew, Aramaic and various Slavic and Romance languages.

Just for fun…

Bissel (bisl)— A little bit, as in “I just want to eat a bissel right now.”

Bubbe (bubby) — Grandmother

Chutzpah —Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption, confidence, as in “It took real chutzpah for him to ask for a raise when he kept showing up late for every appointment.”

Daven — To pray

Klutz — A clumsy person

Kvell — To experience pride in someone else, typically one’s children, as in “David decided to go into oncology, and I’m just kvelling.”

And as an adding fun bonus:

Welcome the following is a brief review of this Bible Study. 1. This BLOG post will have the resources and sources links for the Season 5 Bible Studies . 2. All Books used and Readings from during Live Bible Study can be found on Our Website: Marie Speaks GOD’s Grace. Live in the Season 5 portion of the website. 3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble, and post link in this BLOG. How we conduct Bible Studies here: We believe G-D has called each of us to search matters out. (It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, And the glory of a king to plumb a matter. Like the heavens in their height, like the earth in its depth, Is the mind of kings—unfathomable.. Proverbs 25:2 -3) This is one reason why here at Marie Speaks G-D’s Grace Bible Study, we review several historical references and resources, of which we provide links and or screen shots for others to study at their leisure. We have been directed by G-D Wonderful and Almighty, to go Book by Book, Verse by Verse; sharing HIS Torah and Tanakh. We believe as directed by G-D Our Heavenly Father, learning and growing in Torah and Tanakh leads to understanding and wisdom; this shall only be achieved in reading, studying, and sharing HIS Word for ourselves; not relying on man. Learning, growing, and studying with OUR L-D is to be done with others that are like minded, but more so during our personal time. The BLOGs are written to assist those just beginning to study the BIBLE as a starting point. The Live or recorded Bible Studies are to cover and release opportunities and guidance, but ultimately is ones own personal responsibility to rule, govern, and be purposeful in their relationship with G-D. Proverbs 22: 4 thru 6 The effect of humility is fear of the LORD, Wealth, honor, and life. Thorns and snares are in the path of the crooked; He who values his life will keep far from them. Train a lad in the way he ought to go; He will not swerve from it even in old age. Ezekiel 18:20thru 22 The person who sins, he alone shall die. A child shall not share the burden of a parent’s guilt, nor shall a parent share the burden of a child’s guilt; the righteousness of the righteous shall be accounted to him alone, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be accounted to him alone. Moreover, if the wicked one repents of all the sins that he committed and keeps all My laws and does what is just and right, he shall live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions he committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness he has practiced, he shall live. Is it my desire that a wicked person shall die?—says the L-d G-D. It is rather that he shall turn back from his ways and live. May HaShem, Blessed be He continue to Bless us all and may we all be forever written in the Book of Life. O'Amein and O'Amein Let US Begin!!!!
