This sefer was written by Rabbi Hillel Lichtenstein of Kolomaya. The letters are written in hebrew but when I read it, I do not understand the words. It seems that it is another language. Which one?


Here's a link to the book on Hebrewbooks. Looking at it, it seems to be written in Yiddish.

  • Well, it's sure not Hebrew, and he wrote in Hebrew and Yiddish (Wikipedia page linked to in the question) – Scimonster Dec 18 '14 at 11:05
  • Too bad, I have to read it but I do not understand yiddish.... Do you know if a translation exist? – far22 Dec 18 '14 at 11:06
  • I'm no expert, but it's definitely Yiddish. It uses the word "Yiddishkeit" for example. – WAF Dec 18 '14 at 12:30
