Rebbe: “I am not in favor of [the] Yiddish [language] in yeshivos. There are many yeshivos that are eager to force people to learn all types of subjects in Yiddish – Gemara, etc. I am not eager for this. They waste much time learning a new language, and after they have learned the language – they can’t speak it fluently and they think in English.”

I’m very very surprised by the Rebbe’s lasty comment about yiddish in yeshiva. what does this imply? That only yiddish home language people should learn yiddish in school?

I have seen the pie charts at the UJA meetings.I was shocked.The same at the Jewish Federation.Stunning.
to # 4-The Rebbe says here that it is more important to use the time wisely.
The easier the learning and prayer,the faster the geulah comes.

I’ve been fighting for the abolishing of Yiddish in our schools for years. An educational crime is what it is. It’s high time this wrong got righted. At the most, teach Yiddish as a subject so that sichos and farbrengens can be understood in the original. Other than that, it has no use. We’ll get over the culture shock soon enough.

If you hear the recording the Rebbe clearly is speaking about “South Carolina” not “North Carolina”. This transcript is inaccurate.

Exactly. They need to change the system. They need to trust the rebbe.
