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 heaven.my 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.
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.
