Very funny and indeed a machaya to hear some Yiddish being spoken. The ties between the Chinese and Jews are greater than one realizes. Both intelligent people. In Toronto, the Chinese in the food business used to take their vacation during pesach because the Jews wouldn’t patronize them during Passover.
In the 1980's, when I lived in an apartment up at YU -- I was at 186th and Amsterdam -- there was a widower in his 80's in the neighborhood who was fluent in Yiddish and Chinese, no English, although after decades in the Heights, he did speak "Spanglish". He was a Jewish man who grew up next to Chinatown and moved to Washington Heights after his Chinese wife died.
