YWOTD: Yenta

It is way past the time for another one of my entries for the Yiddish Word Of The Day, so, let’s just cut to the chase.

Yenta – (yĕn’tə) n. Slang
A person, especially a woman, who is meddlesome or gossipy.

I wrote a Roland’s Ramblings back on May 31, 2008 in which I addressed the topic of yentas. Please go read A Short(s) Message and make sure, absolutely sure, upon reading the whole thing that you click on the very last embedded link which is the last two words there; I promise you that you will not be disappointed.

For some very interesting reading entertainment, I suggest you take a look-see at the blog of Yo, Yenta! – Jewish Mothering from the edge!
