Actually I believe nostalgia is something that comes with age. You have to have perspective, and things need to change or there is nothing to be nostalgic about. The question in my mind is are we losing the culture that was defined by Yiddish? I remember Yiddish as a happy and funny culture. Jokes in Hebrew could not match those in Yiddish (and I was born and raised in Haifa in a Hebrew / German speaking home, so Yiddish was barely accessible to me). Yiddish also connected me to the concepts of the shtetel and the small community which is also somewhat gone from our world. Anyway, maybe it is just my experience of it....
