Shayna Shnozz

My mother, bless her with good health and long life, often forwards to me things of interest. And since my interests, and hers, are quite diverse, i never know what to expect. The latest forward was in the form of an email from Charming Hostess of the Bay Area, and a link to her singing a Yiddish version of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.

If you speak even a little Yiddish this song, and the integration of the ancient cartoon, are a good laugh. Is this just the latest volley in the War on Christmas?

“The greatest klezmer Christmas song ever!” A Yiddish Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, performed by San Francisco’s Kugelplex. Vocals by Jewlia Eisenberg of Charming Hostess. Yiddish translation by Gerry Tenney.
