    If anyone is interested, there is some mameloshn in the season premiere of BOARDWALK EMPIRE that is airing all this week on HBO - the last 10 minutes Munya Horvitz, the kosher butcher/gangster from Philly and his wife have 2 lovely scenes in Yiddish.

    it would probably help to designate exactly where the meeting will be: for example, in front of Starbucks (if there is one).
