Today we look at the traditional.
   Everything was somehow related to religion:
     If you don't need a thing , in Yiddish it is the other way round:
    "Ich darf es af Kapures " (I need it for religious sacrifices).
    If you wanted to exaggerate it was:
    " Ich darf es af tischenainzig Kapures". What was "Tishenaynzig?"
       Nobody knew ,it was only used in this connection.
     The little Talles was called " Laptzedekel ".
       If they wouldn't let you have your saying it was :
     " Me losst mich nit zi zim Pusek" they don't let me recite the Tora.
