Re: Dylan's Yiddish Connections

I looked at the website and I assume the "idiot wind" connection was a
joke. I did meet the singer Peter Himmelman, Dylan's son-in-law who is
close to the Chabad movement.  When he heard I taught Yiddish, he sang me a
Yiddish lullaby of his grandmother's. I expected "rozhinkes mit mandlen",
but it was a song that I only know from my grandmother "Shlis shoyn mayn
kind dayne oygen" and has not been printed in any collection. I was
amazed.- Itzik
