Brand new, rewritten almost from scratch, version of liderbukh.jews.international is up! We now have support for multiple versions of the same song, and to celebrate, I finally transcribed the original version of this song, ווער האָט אַזאַ מיידעלע, including a rare recitative verse.

Times are hard, please support my work and this instance at liberapay.com/derpayatz/ for a recurring donation, or at paypal.me/derpayatz for tips...

Why do I spend so much time creating free high quality printable materials of old Yiddish texts and music, using open source tools?

Because I think that such materials and tools must be available to everyone—not just those privileged with academic access—if we want to bridge the chasm created between us and our ancestors by the Holocaust and the era of assimilation, and effect a Yiddish cultural revival in our Diaspora.

Hey sorry I've been away, you know how it is. How is everyone? Are you ready for the apocalypse?

voter suppression efforts are a real thing though so i'd like to advise anyone not to drastically be like "i'm not going to vote" two days before the election because they read something

make a principled decision well in advance

You don't get to tell me that anti-fat bigotry isn't a serious problem until you've had several doctors insist that you can treat the pain in your hands and wrists with weight loss.

It's pure bullshit, an absolute lie, to say the word trap did not begin as a transphobic slur used against trans women

kachol lavan agrees with likud on literally every issue except whether netanyahu should be prime minister

this is why they're considered "radical leftists" by the cult that is likud

or the Zionist is removed from the context of "the Jewish question" and from thousands of years of persecution, and placed at the root of that question and of that persecution

"if it weren't for Zionists, antisemitism wouldn't exist"

Zionism is toxic internalized oppression and misdirected anger that is oppressive in itself; that doesn't mean "the bad Jews" or the Zionists are responsible for the antisemitism that spawned them

the main problem with dividing Jews into "good Jews" and "bad Jews" is it removes Jews from historical context and ultimately confirms the idea that *some Jews* are responsible for antisemitism

e.g. George Soros is removed from the context of the Hungarian antisemitism that he and his family grew up in and is placed, ahistorically, at the root of that same antisemitism

"if it weren't for George Soros and people like George Soros, there would be no antisemitism..." say the antisemites
