This illustrated treasury of Jewish wedding proverbs celebrates the joys of sharing your life with the one you love. More than 100 folk sayings (in both English and Yiddish) capture the warmth, truth, and humor of traditional Jewish proverbs on the cherished bond of matrimony. Ranging from the light-hearted (Delay is good for cheese, but not for a wedding/ Opleygn is nor gut for kez, ober nit far a khasene) to the poignant (When the heart is full, the eyes overflow/Az dos harts iz ful, veln di oygn aribergisn) to the practical (If the will is strong, one will achieve it/Az der viln iz shtark, vet men veln vi es mankht zikh), Yiddish Wisdom for Marriage embraces both the happiness and the tests of married life. With charming watercolors by Kristina Swarner, this intimate volume is a delightful inspiration and the perfect gift.
