Claudia, are you still volunteering your place to watch a movie? Well, it's not exactly a movie but I have the DVD of Avi Hoffman's "Too Jewish". Ehr ret oon zingt als of Yiddish, so I thought it might be a good idea to get the group together to watch it. And yes, we would bring our own refreshments!

    Claudia, Adela, no time on a weekend? During the week is bad for me. Perhaps we should wait until the new goyisch year?

    Rachel and Mike, the little Yiddish I knew when I came to this country (100 years ago?) I forgot as ich hov nit gereddn kein mul, over ich tracht the more I think about and hear it the more I remember it, so...

    Mike, I'd love to see Too Jewish I saw the play un ich glaich it and how Avi Hoffman delivered it! Gedeinst I mentioned I have on VHS the movie "Yankl the Singing Blacksmith"? A most interesting and well acted 1938 movie with Moishe Oysher and his own real wife as his lover. Well I watched it again but forgot to put it back in my "To See" box and I taped over! I searched the net for a long time until I finally found it in Amazon... at $25 bucks! So I'll bring it with me. It's a drama though he sings beautifully that hunk of a man... lol! If on a Sunday, I hope we can meet early evening as I can't make it earlier..... Adela

    Rukhel, Fun vannen zoll ikh visn! Really, all makes and models are welcome. My own Yiddish ... ess toygt off kapoures ... but you'll surely learn something if you listen and you're not too shy to ask. Claudia, it is very kind of you to offer to host. Is there a Sunday afternoon which would be most convenient for you? Just say when and get ready for the mamma-lushen speaking hordes to show up!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
