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.

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.

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

"Coders Should Be Activists"

> Open-source developers could push for climate action or humanitarian causes, but instead, their code has remained a reliable bet for even the most egregious of corporations to use freely

The Nasir-ol-molk Mosque is a stunning place in Shiraz, Iran. Built in the late 19th century with a traditional five concaved design, it's decorated with lots of stained glass. The huge number of pink tiles in its interior design sometimes earn it the nickname of The Pink Mosque.

A blend of arabic and western aesthetics, the mosque has a design distinct from the traditional Persian style, with many colourful floral patterns rather than the turquoise geometric shapes seen elsewhere.

Judaism shitpost 

contemporary neonazism 101: "white genocide" is an antisemitic conspiracy theory that implicates Jews in a conspiracy against the white race and is actively being used to gun us down in synagogues as well as to target us for constant harassment. It is alluded to constantly in the everyday politics of Republican politicians

i estimate that a large number of my toots could simply be replaced by "nu?" and i shall endeavor to make this happen
