In the wake of the COVID19 pandemic in 2020, these are my quarantined "coffee talk" conversations with my Aunt Blanche.

Aunt Blanche is calling in from her apartment in the Upper East Side of NYC. I reside in Boston, MA.

We learn a Yiddish word of the day, how to incorporate Yiddish into daily vernacular, and discuss Jewish Pop Culture.

We would love to hear from you! :-)
