Do you know if the Satmar Rebbe, the Hatam Sofer, or R Hillel Lichtenstein wrote books in Yiddish? Do you know if Shirat Moshe by the Hatam Sofer is written in Yiddish?

I am also looking for rabbinical books in yiddish with vowels. Do you know any?


Rabbi Hillel Lichtenstein wrote Eis Laasos volume 1 & volume 2 in Yiddish.

  • Thanks a lot! There is vowels too! Do you know if he wrote other books in Yiddish ? Same question for the Hatam Sofer and the Satmar Rebbe – mie Sep 19 '14 at 16:19

I don't know of books in Yiddish by the rabbis you mentioned offhand, but there are many rabbis whose Yiddish-language speeches were collected, naturally, in Yiddish. Most famous of these is probably the many, many volumes of the Lubavitcher Rebbe's sichos. You will have a hard time finding Yiddish books with Hebrew-style vowels because Yiddish uses a different convention where Hebrew consonants represent vowels. Broadly speaking, ע=eh א=uh or ah. Hebrew nikkud is only used in Yiddish for ambiguities.

  • Thanks! The books Gershon mentioned are written with vowels – mie Sep 19 '14 at 16:19
