Our Kveller hearts are fluttering like a million butterfly wings right now. According to C-Span, Clinton “once took a Yiddish lesson” as a way to relate to her Jewish supporters.
However, according to Beth Harpaz, author of “The Girls in the Van: Covering Hillary,” Clinton used the word kvell properly in a sentence, but pronounced it wrong, adding an extra syllable in there (ka-vell). Clinton apparently did take lessons to try and say the word correctly, but to no avail.
Either way, we appreciate her effort. Don’t forget to watch the video of Harpaz explaining Hillary’s Yiddishe moment.
